Whilst searching for interesting social media sites to suggest i came across a site called jumo , which is still in the making. It caught my eye because it is made by Chris Hughes, the co creator of Facebook who states Jumo will “bring together everyday individuals and organizations to speed the pace of global change. We connect people to the issues, organizations, and individuals relevant to them to foster lasting relationships and meaningful action.”

Although it is all still a bit vague, i think it sounds like an interesting advance on Facebook, as it will be organised like a social network site, but will aim to match up “do-gooders” and social organisations to appropriate causes.

I signed up, and recieved a conformation email saying : “Thanks for signing up. We’re busy building a site that we hope will revolutionize the way you engage with the world. Pretty soon, you’ll be able to connect to the issues, people and organizations that are important to you and find opportunities for meaningful action.” I have tried to research, but am still unsure about when the site will actually kick in, but meanwhilst, if anybody else finds it an interesting prospect, I have found an article on mashable explaining more about it, and also a Facebook fan page for you all to check out!
