This Friday, April 1st, TechSoup’s NonProfit Commons in Second Life will feature a presentation on using memes for social good. Last year we explored memes as elements of culture that often get passed on from person to person, and virally propagate around the internet. They can be images, videos, audio files and even sayings or bits of text. This time, we will focus on animated GIFs and short video memes, how you can use them for social good, and go through some of the online tools you can use to create them.
Join us in Second Life!
