It’s time to talk about the unique, little page of our calendars — February! A lot like its special existence, it was a special month #InsideSocialCops.

We welcomed some amazing people, some powerful features, and some humbling awards to the SocialCops family. All this and more made it a month of “Little Wins, Wide Smiles, and Big Dreams!”

To further bridge the distance between data and decisions, we launched a brand new feature on Collect. Say hi to Analytics! Analytics lets you get quick insights about your data collection, making it easy breezy for you to take crucial decisions.

What we are writing

In a personal blog, Data for Impact Fellow Carson Whisler shares why he chose to invest himself in impact and why he thinks it paid off. Read it here.
