Social Media

Like, Follow, Stumble…Grow?

Social Media is great! It allows us to communicate with friends and family, connects us with new people, and build upon existing relationships. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is peel our eyes away from our smartphones, laptops and tablets. Leaving us like technologically absorbed walking zombies.

Whilst Facebook and Twitter seem to have swept the world by storm, it is concerning to see that small charities and not-for-profit organisations in Harrow, are not taking part in this great resource.

Social Media allows deeper engagement with friends, fans and community, allowing a fully networked sharing experience. For example Twitter can be used as a great way to showcase upcoming events, converse on similar interests or related topics and is perfect to communicate a message to the Twittersphere. Facebook, on the other-hand, is perfect to initiate group conversations and physically show what you do through pictures.

There are so many social media channels out there social networks, blogging platforms, online forums and many more. It is vital for Nonprofits to become socially active and communicate.

The Community & Voluntary Sector can no longer hide away, charities and not-for-profits must have a social presence and GROW!
