How Charities Can Use Social Media

I’ve been sharing a lot of info on using social media in the previous blog posts.  Social media is an important hook in your public relations toolbox, but it should not replace the traditional outlets like print, radio, television, online magazines, and blogs.

Charities rely on public support and so need to find new ways to reach their supporters, potential donors and volunteers. Social media can be one of the most effective ways for charities to build supporters, boost donations, share success stories, network with like-minded organisations, encourage people to sign up to campaigns, recruit volunteers, or demonstrate the impact of their work.  We found some great social media strategies for charitable organizations from a blogger in the U.K.
