Chris Hughes who is one of the founders of Facebook and is also the chief digital organizer for president Barack Obama’s presidential campaign is spending time now coming up with a new social networking site called Jumo. Jumo is aimed to connect people with non-profits and charitable organizations. Jumo is going to be unveiled next Tuesday to the public. For example, the building of a new school in Africa will have dedicated pages on Jumo. Other social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube will have links on Jumo so people can stay connected through that as well. Hughes states that the site would not just be for donations but to have the users connected to there favorite causes. Jumo is starting off with 3,000 issues and groups that people can stay connected to and be apart of but anyone who is a member can start their own group.
