Facebook Co-Founder Launches Another Social Network For Social Good [Jumo]

CONNECT WITH HBB ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Jumo logoChris R. Hughes (Founder of Jumo) is a United States entrepreneur who co-founded and served as spokesman for the online social directory and networking site, Facebook, with Harvard roommates Mark Zuckerberg, Dustin Moskovitz and Eduardo Saverin.

Today the Facebook Co-founder Chris Hughes has launched his much-buzzed-about social network — Jumo. This special venture can be described as “Social Network for Social Good”.

Jumo is a social network connecting individuals and organizations who want to change the world. Leveraging connection technologies, Jumo enables people to find, follow and support those working toward solutions on the ground in their community and in regions across the globe.

Jumo Beta

Chris Hughes left Facebook in 2007 for becoming Obama campaign’s director of online organizing. He soft-launched Jumo, a non-profit organization that “aims to help people find ways to help the world, last March.


What Is The Intention Of This Social Network?

Founded in February 2010, Jumo set out to address three key challenges:

  • There are millions of people working to improve the lives of others, many of whom lack the resources to have greatest impact.
  • There are millions more who want to help, but don’t know how.
  • Despite huge advancements in connection technologies, it’s hard to find meaningful opportunities to get involved.
    We believe we can do better.

    What You Can Do Using Jumo

  • Find the issues and organization you care about
  • Follow the latest news and updates
  • Support their work with your time, money and skills.
  • Together we can speed the pace of global change.

      Didn’t knew about Jumo. Just heard that it’s cool. Need to check it out.

    • Manish Agarwal

      Yeah, this man know that the Facebook can’t survive for long time due to the contineously down its stock price and It is expected that Facebook will be down by 2020.
      This is the gr8 time starting something New like JUMO.

    • Vishnudath

      ohhh. More and More Social Networking Sites are starting these days.

    • Anand

      Its really Exciting but how do I use it how do I create Login ID in Jumo.

    • Crunchynow

      looks like he wanna rule the whole world….

    • Nick

      Thanks for your post. We had all kind of problems registering with Jumo and trying to create an organization profile for TechChange.

      We’ve blogged about the registration process on our site and also included some other insights after using the platform for several hours over the past few days: http://techchange.org/blog/

      I hope they get things worked out technically and start adding some additional and relevant features. The concept of having a social network for social causes is a strong one but its not off to a very good start.

      hi pradeep, chris was in facebook team and he has the experience of building a booming social networking site. and i think it will help him most. he must going to offer some better facilities here. they are saying that they are going to good to mankind. i welcome it but i think Mark is right at this point. let’s wait to see what they are going to do.

    • Mark

      I read about Jumo in the news, and the first thought that came to my mind was, “Oh no! Not another social networking site!”.

      So, they say they are here to do good to the world, and all they seem to be interested in as of this moment, is to try and pull Facebook users over to their site. Is there a relation between improving the lives of others and that? Ah, well, may be they want to improve the life of Facebook users? LOL!

      Damn, they are all after the money that comes from “legally selling” off personal data about you and me (well, not me).

      Cheers,
      Mark

      Thats cool to hear 🙂

    • Marlene

      I should say that the name doesn’t sound like it’s a social networking site. But let’s see how it will outsmart Facebook.

    • Cyber World

      the leaders are behind the site… sure in sucess way…. liked it….

    • Pankaj Gupta

      Currently the site is not opening.. I think some works going on..

    • Anshul Tewari

      Quite good, but I somehow fail to understand why I am not being able to create an account 😐

    • prabhakaran

      The site is cool. I think its different from facebook. 🙂 Not too commercial.!

    • Rohit | Ipod Touch 4G

      i think Jumo’s beta is not working for me…as i tried to sign-up many times but nothing happened….And i don;t think Jumo is not a part of Facebook or not associated with it..otherwise why would they allow only Facebook users to Sign-Up now..

    • Crunchynow

      going to launch and make it soon bigger than facebook seems like………

    • Anup

      Woaw! Great news! I will use this new social site 🙂

    • Anish K.S

      Cool site, the name is also good.

    • Praveen-Techperk

      it is quite hard to win actually

    • Mani Viswanathan

      Good initiative by him. Though I think it would not be as popular as Facebook, simply because he is alone & with a new team. Maybe they should get united with Facebook for more exposure.

    • usman

      The Jumo Social Network looks good. Best of luck for the future success

    • Jasmine

      Jumo looks cool… not sure it will click or not. Hey, that’s a nice pussy cat! 🙂

    • Dana

      Jumo seems promising as alternative for Facebook. Interesting to find out how Jumo will compete.

    • Vincent Raja

      Really Nice Social Site.. which helps to get support the various feilds in one place…
