Social Media and Your Nonprofit Organization
The onset of social media has created new and innovative ways for nonprofits to get their message out and to engage in advocacy and public relations. It has opened up new avenues to reach people that have not existed in the past. Social Media can give nonprofits unique ways to publicize events and send out invitations. It can also help create connections and networks between other organizations and people who share your vision and can help accomplish mission objectives. It is becoming imperative that nonprofits join in the benefits a strategic social media campaign can bring. For general information on creating social media campaigns please see these links:
