Yahoo Breathes Life into One.org
Yahoo! has collaborated with U2 lead singer and humanitarian Bono to revamp the anti-poverty online project One.org. With Yahooâ€™s efforts, One.org has turned into an online platform for community organizing. The new updated website went live on Friday and the company said that it took them several months to come out with the final result.
Meg Garlinghouse, head of the Yahoo for Good division said in a statement on this launch:
â€œWe are really proud of this one. It shows that you are part of a larger community and it isnâ€™t just you raising your voice.â€
This project was co-founded by U2 singer Bono and â€˜One: The Campaign to Make Poverty Historyâ€™ was started by a US coalition made up of more than two million people. New telecommuter and superstar humanitarian in his own right, Bill Gates, is one of the supporters of this group.
The new updated website now includes features such as podcasts, blogs, maps and photos of the project related events.
