Take Your Agency’s Social Media Game to the Next Level

Long gone are the days of MySpace versus Facebook for social dominance among college students. Online social networking has transformed into a powerhouse industry working to distribute breaking news, coordinate with advertisers, and establish itself as an integral tool for communicating directly with mass audiences.

As a relatively young industry, however, social media presents a number of public relations challenges while requiring a certain degree of administrative tech-savviness. What kind of content should an organization post? How best can an agency interact with the public, and in real time? When can a nonprofit optimize online communication efforts for capacity building?

This month's post about featured resources on the Alliance Library discussion on myAlliance includes a selection of materials, websites, and other resources related to Social Media, Risk, and Policies for Nonprofits.

Highlights include:

  • Best blogging practices
  • Social media and networking policies
  • Taking your Twitter game to the next level
  • Strategies for leveraging social media more effectively
