Barack Obamaâs campaign organization, Organizing for America, in one of its first VoiceVoice social conferencing events in 2009, invited volunteers nationwide to discuss the initiative on health care. Participants from different regions met in groups of four to discuss which messages were working, and which werenât. They then reconvened the group and asked the volunteers to âraise their handâ (by pressing 1) if they learned something, and would like to share it with the larger group. National field director Jeremy Bird told us: âIn the past, we had one-way conference calls, because our technology limited our ability to have interactive conversations and make people feel like they were part of something where they could be heard. We used social conferencing to keep that kind of empowering and engaging campaign ethos at the local level.â
A group of program managers and field consultants for the World Bank convened an event on VoiceVoice, to set priorities for an upcoming retreat regarding a development project in the Nile River Basin. In breakout groups, they discussed essential questions like âWhat is the highest possibility for the retreat?â âWhat does success look like after the retreat?â and âWhat are the most important questions that you would like answered at the retreat?â The experience was well received, and Gustavo Saltiel, Program Manager from the World Bank, noted "this was much better organized than other conference calls... the Breakout Groups were an effective way for us to really talk with each other."
In a 5 hour âCyber Cafe,â 70+ academics participated in a virtual âmeet-and-greetâ to learn more about areas the NSF is interested in funding. The topic was collaborative research in cybersecurity between the fields of computer science and the social sciences. Even though the NSF wasnât ready to publicly announce the allocation of this $10M in grant funding, this event encouraged more proposals for potential collaborative research in advance of the funding announcement. Breakout Groups were set up so researchers were matched with the right funding branch, such as Cyber Economics, Cyber Ethics, Finance and Criminology, Sociology, Privacy and Cyber Psychology. As the event organizer told us, âI was so impressed with everyone from your team, and with the technology that allows us to have this kind of in-depth engagement with people from all over the country so efficiently and effectively.â
MoveOn is a community of more than 8 million Americans from all walks of life who use innovative technology to lead, participate in, and win campaigns for progressive change. MoveOn convenes several events every week to support their members in creating effective campaigns for change by using petitions and other socially disruptive âdays of action.â Some sample events are: âGetting your petition noticed by your target,â âGrowing Your Petition and Making it a Success,â and âMoveOn Petitions Follow-Up Conversation.â Many of these discussions led to subsequent success from petitions that went viral and provide a learning forum in Breakout Groups where members who are starting a local campaign can build upon the experience gained from petitioners who were successful at the national level.

âWe are starting to see the tremendous impact social conferencing is having on how volunteers feel connected with each other and OFA. People want to be a part of the conversation and comment threads or 140 characters don't go all the way.â405-759-3994
âHow awesome would it be to be able to get on the phone and give an audio presentation to 50, 100, or even several thousand people at the same time? They could even ask questions during the call, although you'd be able to mute them out when appropriate.â7204142555
âThe calls are run by InterOccupy facilitators on a system called VoiceVoice, which allows for both voting by phone and smaller breakout calls in the middle of a larger call. The process mimics the consensus-based general assemblies that were popularized...â2695445252
