I love the idea behind this WordPress plugin from Social Action. It makes me think of Paul Bradshaw’s 2007 5w and an H idea for news organisations. The plugin is described as:
“Related Ways to Take Action” enables you to share ways to take action based on the stuff you’re already writing about.
The WordPress plugin works by scanning each of your posts for the top three keywords and then searches for related actions from Change.org, GlobalGiving.com, Idealist.org, DonorsChoose.org, Kiva, Care2 and over twenty other Social Action Platforms. It then automatically loads the top three campaigns for those keywords at the bottom of each of your posts.
There are also extra customization features for enabling (or blocking) certain keywords, choosing platforms, and choosing action types.
“Related Ways to Take Action” makes it super easy to activate your WordPress blog for social change by sharing related campaigns, petitions, fundable projects, and more ways your readers can make a difference based on your blog content.
The “Related Ways to Take Action” WordPress Plugin is a project of Social Actions Labs and was developed by Eric Cooper.
Thanks to Alice Casey for spotting this one.
On behalf of the Social Actions team, we’re so glad you love the plugin!
You and your readers will most likely get excited about Social Actions’ just-launched Change the Web Challenge — $10,000 in prizes to encourage more applications that distribute 60,000+ actions from 40+ online platforms across the web.
