This page was created for engaged citizens, or people who want to use Social Actions to find ways to support their favorite causes. We have prepared this page thinking about questions you may be asking yourself. You will find them in italics.  



I've never heard of Social Actions before. What is it? 


Social Actions is a project presented by a group of people who, with ideals and ideas, are working on three big things:  

  • Making it easier for people like you to make a difference on the causes you care about.
  • Promoting collaborations that advance the work of social innovators.
  • Developing open source software that adds a philanthropic layer to the web. 



I'm one of those people who wants to make a difference on a cause I care about. What can I find here that will help me? 


  • An actions search engine. If you want to find things right here, right now, you can just go to the search engine. Type a couple of words, click on "Search", and there you have it!


(There are instructions on how to use the Apps and Action packs on the pages that are linked to above)



Is there a place on Social Actions where I can get in touch with other people interested in taking action, philanthropy, etc.?


Yes! You can join us at My Social Actions, where you can read or share blogposts, information about events, and mostly communicate with other people who share your interests.



How have other people like me used Social Actions to find ways to support a cause?


(this section has yet to be worked on; it will feature a couple of simple case studies that exemplify how people reading this page can use Social Actions)



Where else can I find Social Actions materials?


Apart from the apps that you may see in other webpages, there are two main sources for Social Actions information outside the website: the Twitter account we have, @socialactions , and our Facebook fanpage, Social Actions



Where do I go if I have any other questions?


Apart from having the freedom to post any comments or questions you may have on this wiki, on My Social Actions, or on the Facebook page, you can find some contact information here.





All the information about other aspects Social Actions can be found at our wiki. Click here to go to the index. 


Question for the reviewers: If you were a user that only wants to find a way to support a specific cause, do you think you'd understand how to use Social Actions for that purpose by reading this page? Do you think that there are other ways Social Actions can help these people already and that aren't mentioned here?
