One of the fastest growing trends in the nonprofit social networking sector is the use of Facebook and other social tools to deliver nonprofit programs and services directly to constituents and supporters online.
In this session, we present five organizations that are using social networks in creative and incredibly effective ways to engage their constituents for mutual benefit – to make change and improve lives.
- Sierra Club: Advocacy – National grassroots activism on 4 private social networking sites for consumers, super advocates, college students, and hunters, using the Blackbaud Social software platform.
