Social Media for Nonprofits for the May 22nd Nonprofit Commons Meeting

This Friday, May 22nd, TechSoup’s Nonprofit Commons in Second Life meeting will feature Michelle Morton, who will walk us through how social media has made a huge impact in the nonprofit world and how you too can use these tools to aid your organization.
With more than one billion monthly active users on Facebook, and over 230 million monthly active users on Twitter, smart brand owners and marketers know there’s more potential than ever to use social media to get their name out there, spread their content, and draw more people to there site. As a non-profit organization, it is even more important to reach important objectives to keep your organization alive, including fundraising, membership recruitment and retention, motivating volunteers and more.
