At UberConference, we believe all children deserve a normal life. Sadly, every year, over 170,000 children are born with a cleft lip or palate. Most in the developing world cannot afford the necessary surgery to correct this. They cannot eat or speak properly and many are not allowed to go to school or hold a job.

The good news is every single child with a cleft lip or palate can be helped with surgery that costs as little as $250!

That’s why we’ve teamed up with Smile Train this Holiday season to help them reach their goal to help over one million of these children who would not normally be able to get the surgery they need.

UberConference will give $5000 to the cause this Holiday season. With the help of a little star power from Kevin RoseCauses.com and caring fans like you, we hope to raise a matching donation of $5000 as well. That’s a total of $10,000 we’d like to be able to give to this worthy cause. Any amount you can give helps. If you can only give $1 we understand, but the more you can afford to help out, the more children we can help out, too. Please help Smile Train give the gift of a normal childhood to over 1 million children worldwide. Donate with us now and help give over 1 million children a better life.

We’ve just upgraded UberConference to High Definition (HD) audio.  Anyone who joins a conference call from their computer now sounds absolutely fantastic.  As if our visual interface wasn’t enough, now you’ll really want to connect to calls through your computer.

Call into your next conference call on Chrome to experience the difference. Schedule your call now!

For now, Google Chrome is required to enjoy Audio HD. We’re working on adding support for Firefox.  As more browsers support WebRTC, we’ll add them too.

How to Get Your Whole Company Hooked on Social with Michael Brito

SVP of Social Business for Edelman, Michael Brito, is a social media rockstar with over 30k Twitter followers and a book currently out on Amazon Smart Business Social Business. He’s one of the main forces behind social for companies like Hewlett Packard and Intel, and one of the foremost experts in the country when it comes to B2B social media marketing. Host of our Ubercast, Sarah Buhr, sat down to chat with Michael at the Edelman offices in downtown San Francisco about some key ways to get everyone you work with on board with the social program.

Tips:

  • Get engineers and others in the company involved. Ask them to write a blog post and actively talk about their expertise.
  • Create a social media employee guide to help those in the company understand messaging and social media etiquette
  • Encourage employees to actively tweet out and post company messaging on their own social channels.
