Look, something shiny! | Weekly Roundup
Liz and Maddy have shared the privilege of writing the roundup for you this week, so here goes nothing (and by nothing I mean a few links on nonprofit communications that I hope you enjoy).
- Are you suffering from “Shiny Object Syndrome” as an early adopter of Google+ and starting to realize that you don’t have time to maintain another platform? Beth Kanter blogs about her initial reactions and whether nonprofits should dive in early or wait.
- Is your organization working on a plan to approach and engage Millenials? Lori Halley from Wild Apricot points out that Millenials have overtaken Baby Boomers and are now the largest generation in American history. It’s never to early to start getting us involved.
- If you’re feeling good about your presence on Facebook and Twitter, maybe it’s time for you to get your feet wet on foursquare. Here is everything you need to know about creating a foursquare page and more to get you started.
- Have you ever searched your organization on Facebook only to find a mysterious page with your organization’s name and a grey briefcase? Facebook now lets you combine those Community Pages with your nonprofit’s Page. Heather Mansfield of Nonprofit Tech 2.0 explains how to merge the two.
- Now that you’ve been staring at your screen reading all these blog posts has your vision gone blurry and all the words are melding together? Mashable is here to help you cope and give you a look into future technology. It’s eye-opening.
