Workshop on: Online Campaigns and Social Media for Nonprofits
21st to 23rd December, 2009
Social media can be used as a powerful tool for social change. Maybe you already have a Facebook profile and may have even braved Twitter, but do you really understand how to use these tools effectively? We will walk you through planning your social media goals and will help you to measure the outcomes. Your objectives could be varied-- perhaps you wish to recruit new volunteers, energize existing supporters, inform donors or just market your cause. We will talk about ways to get there.
