Social Media Guru Mashable.com Cites Organizations Using Social Media for Public Good

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., July 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Oral Cancer Foundation was recently praised by a leading Internet media Web site in an article discussing non-profit organizations that are effectively using Internet-based social media for the public good. Mashable, the world's largest site focused exclusively on Web 2.0 and social media such as blogs, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, touted the online efforts of several organizations in a recent story entitled, 5 Unique Social Good "Finds." Other organizations cited included The National Suicide Prevention Hotline and the ASPCA.

Founded in July 2005, Mashable is the most prolific source for information and reviews of new Web sites and services, publishes breaking news on new web developments, and provides social media resources and guides. Mashable's audience includes early adopters and influencers, social media enthusiasts, entrepreneurs, large and small corporations, marketing, PR and advertising agencies, Web 2.0 aficionados, and technology journalists.

"We are flattered that our social media efforts have generated the attention and kind words of such a leading edge organization," said Brian Hill, Founder and Executive Director of the Oral Cancer Foundation. "We dedicate a great deal of time and focus to social media, which we believe allows us to connect with younger members of our audience in a way that is richer, more meaningful, and more relevant than we can achieve using more traditional media. This is particularly important to us, as individuals impacted by oral cancers have been increasingly young people, previously not thought to be at risk. Learning from Mashable's expertise has helped us to reach out to this younger, technology savvy population, with information we hope will help them avoid risk factors for oral cancers, and understand that the perception that this is a disease that only smokers get, is incorrect."
