Power to the Pages | Weekly Roundup
- Time to revisit your nonprofit’s approach to Facebook. Pages got a big old upgrade this week, including an important new feature: the ability to interact (liking, commenting, etc.) as your organization’s Page, not just as yourself.
- New Pages also get their very own News Feed, just like the one you see every day (or maybe every few minutes) when you log into Facebook. Learn more about the ins and outs of the News Feed and why it’s of interest to your nonprofit with this detailed overview from JD Lasica on Socialbrite.
- And now that your Page will be getting some more attention, treat it to a new look: revisit your organization’s profile picture. Are you using it well? Does it look good in the small version that appears next to your name when you post (a.k.a. your thumbnail)? Nonprofit Tech 2.0 shares some examples of nonprofits that make good use of their profile pictures.
- Homepage slideshows are all the rage for nonprofit websites nowadays—should your organization jump on the bandwagon? On EchoDitto’s blog, Patrick St. John offers some interesting food for thought about the advantages and challenges of the slideshow format.
- Say “I love you” the nonprofity way with this list of fun ideas for bringing good causes into your Valentine’s Day celebrations from Elaine Gast Fawcett.
