Nonprofits and Social Media: Understanding Why You Tweet (or Facebook…or blog…)

Written by: Melissa Noyes, Cofounder/Web Coordinator

Good Monday morning, world changers!  It’s a fantastic Monday–it’s stopped snowing and the Green Bay Packers are Super Bowl champions.  (For all you Packer fans, click here for some Packer awesome-ness.) 

In the past couple weeks, I’ve been exploring nonprofits and the use of social media–focusing mainly on the “how-to’s” .  It occurred to me; however, that it is just as important to figure out the “why’s” of using social media in your nonprofit.  Understanding why social media matters can help you to create a comprehensive strategy for effectively utilizing these tools.

I ran across a blog today that provides some excellent info on making sure your social media strategy is on-target.  Check it out here.

Happy tweeting!
