SOCON is a multi purpose civic organization, designed to help social media users connect with each other in real life, while building links between physical and virtual lives, and gaining the skills needed to monetize their time on social media. SOCON is produced by Athanasios Zarkadas and Kristen Slevin, and a volunteer network of thousands on Google+. The internet has provided people with a civilizations worth of information, but little in the way of direction. SOCON actively bridges the gap, by establishing global and universal norms through our international standards board. SOCON members live the golden rule and support basic human rights as outlined by The United Nations.
