Dreamforce is slowly coming to an end, and what an amazing three days it has been! Wednesday brought us 29,193 #DF13 tweets which is slightly lower than the 41,000 tweets from Tuesday, but still higher than the 24,000 tweets we analyzed on Monday.
The tweets streamed through evenly all day long as attendees were active during all of the keynote presentations with brands like Stanley Black & Decker showing off how they are creating connected power tools and using Salesforce1 to augment the user experience on mobile and get the customer faster assistance. Honeywell was another manufacturer showing off their new connected thermostat that could be controlled via an app on their iPhone.Read More
During the keynote on Tuesday, Marc Benioff confirmed the attendance of Dreamforce this year was 135,000 people. On Tuesday, Salesforce also live streamed the keynote sessions to an additional 10,000+ people, which in total is an increase of 55,000 people over last year! The live stream included all of the keynote presentations with Marc Benioff in the morning and Marissa Mayer in the evening. While day 1 saw an impressive 24,922 #DF13 tweets, day 2 produced even more of a reaction from attendees with over 41,000 tweets!
Since there were only 90,000 attendees at Dreamforce last year, I was curious how #DF13 compared to #DF12, so I compared the two using Topsy.com. During the month of September in 2012 the #DF12 hashtag was used a total of 116,212 times with the peak day being Wednesday, September 18 with 31,181 tweets. So far #DF13 has already seen 92,513 tweets in November with yesterday being the biggest day with 41,887 tweets.Read More
Well, day 1 of one of the largest conferences is officially in the books so it is time for our social recap of day 1 at Dreamforce. With over 120,000 attendees at #DF13 this year, we were sure that people would be bringing the conversation online by taking pictures at the event, tweeting gems heard in sessions and we have not been disappointed! Monday saw just shy of 25,000 tweets from the Dreamforce hive in San Francisco:

By now you know that The Connected Cause is headed to Dreamforce and sponsoring the NPO Engagement Party but one top of that Heller Consulting will also be giving away an iPad Mini, 30 mobile chargers and will be providing a social snapshot for the entire #DF13 event.
While there are quite a few Heller Consulting employees who will be roaming around #DF13, attending sessions, leading panels and more, be sure to come to booth #9 at the Foundation Zone, which is located at the big red star (click for a bigger image) to register to win an iPad Mini:Read More
In the age of social media, anything humans say can be transferred across the globe in a matter of seconds. Shane Jones at Nten.org recently outlined ways nonprofit organizations can use Twitter and are able to do a lot of good with it. Below are his tips to use Twitter to raise awareness along with some examples of nonprofits using this medium well.
On Twitter, nonprofit charities are able to gain a tremendous following. Some of the more powerful nonprofits include UNICEF with over 2 million followers and the Gates Foundation with just over 1 million followers. These two are examples of how large an audience, free from geographic restrictions, a nonprofit can reach on Twitter. Even smaller or newer nonprofits are effective at building a significant online presence if they’re willing to put in the time and work.Read More
