Don’t you “like” me anymore? | Weekly Roundup
- If your nonprofit has a Facebook Page, don’t just settle for “likes”–turn those clicks into real relationships with the help of this great presentation from Carie Lewis of the Humane Society.
- And while we’re on the subject, Facebook announced some big changes to the way they play the location game–they’re discontinuing Places and weaving location more seamlessly into your status updates instead.
- Wish you could create a blog for your nonprofit, but worried that it’s too much work for anyone on your team to take on? Consider sharing the load by asking different staff, volunteers, and supporters to contribute (we Ducks find that it works swimmingly). John Haydon on Inspiring Generosity shares some useful tips for getting your multi-author blog off the ground.
- It can be hard to communicate the value of your nonprofit’s work to donors and clients, but the Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library is showing us how it’s done with this smart “return on investment” calculator.
- Next time you find yourself in Japan, do some good with your soft drinks–buy a soda from one of these sweet vending machines that let you donate your change to charity (from Mark Phillips of queer ideas blog).
