Here's a survey request we're passing along, good for this week only, from the Facebook group "Nonprofits on Facebook." Anyone can take the online survey, which probes how and whether nonprofits are using social media and Web 2.0 in relation to political and advocacy activities. The request comes from the National Wildlife Federation's online advocacy manager David Pierpont, who'll use the results in a panel discussion next week at the Institute for Politics, Democracy and the Internet's Politics Online conference. Pierpont (and we) will report on the results. Go here to see his request on Facebook (if you're registered with that site). David's request is a great example in itself of how to use social networking sites--and special-interest groups on them--to pose questions, share information, and get a quick read of an interested community.
