Question on NCDD Forum about online engagement

For those who don’t know, we’re using NCDD’s recently-relaunched forum at https://ncdd.org/forum to gather materials and insights on the 3 focus areas for our one-day regional events in Austin, Boston, Denver, San Francisco and Portland.

Matt Leighninger (Director of the Deliberative Democracy Consortium), who’s working on a report on online engagement, just posted a question in the forum that he’d love your responses to.  Matt’s question asks whether you agree that there are two main ways of thinking about online engagement:  go where they are (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) or create an online space and convene people there.  He asks, “Is this a fair assessment of the two main approaches? Is it too stark a contrast – perhaps most real-world projects fall somewhere in between? What are their relative strengths and weaknesses? Is there a third approach? (and a fourth?)”

Using the forum is easy:  go to https://ncdd.org/forum and click on the link to Register (if you used to participate in NCDD’s old forum, you can just log in). Then click on the title of the 4th topic down (Effective Online Engagement), click into Matt’s post and respond.
