Facebook and Project Agape

I wrote about networks and nonprofits in a post on LinkedInforGood. Yesterday, in announcing its efforts to become the "social platform for the Internet," Facebook announced partnerships with Amazon, eBay, and Project Agape. This will allow the 24 million users of Facebook to promote nonprofits they support, raise funds, share information about causes - the networks come together.

The news here is bigger than Project Agape. It is that the Facebook platform is open for anyone to build applications and create communities. So is going into this, and any organization could create their own type of Facebook app to combine their content and transactional abilities -- donations, sign-ups, etc.
