About the Presenter Social Actions is an award-winning nonprofit initiative closing in on its first year of operations. Our mission is to connect people with opportunities to take action in an effort to increase the scope and impact of the citizen sector. Towards that end, we develop technology that help people find and share high-impact and relevant ways to make a difference. Social Actions has developed a search interface and open API that aggregates actionable opportunities from over 30 social action platforms including, Kiva, Idealist, and To demonstrate the potential of the open API, Social Actions recently launched a web application that automatically scans the content of the web page on which it appears, identifies the top three keywords for that page, searches for related campaigns across the social action platforms, and automatically recommends opportunities to take action related to the content of the site. Social Actions was selected as a 2008 Stockholm Challenge finalist, won two prizes at this year’s NetSquared conference, and has been mentioned in several leading news media including PBS Online, The San Francisco Chronicle Online, The Wall Street Journal, The Daily Telegraph, and TechCrunch.
