This Friday, May 29th, TechSoup’s Nonprofit Commons in Second Life meeting will feature a discussion on Mobile phone growth, usage, and strategy for nonprofits and educators. Mobile and smart phone usage has been consistently on the rise. Smart phones are increasingly how many youth, elderly, and those in areas of the world where cell networks are more reliable, access the internet. Even Google has begun to change how it ranks web sites by their mobile ‘friendliness’. What does all of this mean for the strategy of your org or project? Come chat about mobile, from strategy to fundraising.
Immediately following our regular Nonprofit Commons meeting, in conjunction with Virtual Village, we will be hosting a NPC mentor-led tour of the member offices and resource spaces that make up the Nonprofit Commons community.
Join us in Second Life!
