The Social Media 101 session includes practical tips and tools for extending your cause and mission. We’ll cover the basics of using social media for your nonprofit organization and give you handy tips for the “big 3:” Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. You may be surprised to learn that Facebook is less important than you’ve been told and LinkedIn may be more important.

Join us to learn:

  • How to use Facebook to create awareness for your organization.
  • How nonprofits are using Twitter to connect with constituents.
  • Why nonprofits must be LinkedIn to be fully connected.
  • Powerful no-cost or low-cost tools to manage your social media presence.
