  4. Why Social Media Matters Because instead of looking here… We look here…

  5. Why Social Media Matters • 93% of nonprofits use at least one form of social media • 93% of those use social media for marketing purposes • Only 37% use it for program delivery • Social Media audiences are growing faster than email and webpage audiences Sources: 2012 Nonprofit Social Networking Benchmark Report 2012, and Nonprofit Benchmark Report 2014

  6. Elements of Social Media • Platforms– Generic (social networking site, blog, forum) or specific (Facebook, Huffington Post, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.) • Content – Generic (photos, blog posts, video) or specific (Vine video vs. Youtube video) • Devices – Mobile, Tablet, Desktop • Audience – The audience drives the content

  7. Social and New Media • Social media: websites and apps that let users share and network with each other • New media: means of mass communications • Example: Use Facebook (social media) on smart phone (new media) • Not all emerging technologies and apps are social, but many are

  8. New Media • Digital computer-based therapy on the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices • Behavioral intervention apps for smoking cessation and weight loss • Gamification is trending • If apps aren’t social yet, they will be • As critical to understand new media as it is to understand social media

  38. Facebook Insights • Posts from your page that have board members & volunteers tagged increases organic views • “Boosting” a post, or the Facebook term for promoting, should be used for important news and messages where organic views & activity are not being achieved after 24 hours

  39. Facebook Insights • Example:

  40. Facebook Insights • This post received 1,672 Organic views and 21 Likes or Comments

  41. Facebook Insights • This post received 138 Organic views and 884 Paid Views with 19 Likes

  42. Facebook Insights • For the paid post a total of $5.00 was spent to reach 884 people who either liked the page or who liked the post.

  43. Facebook Insights • The difference in the paid versus non-paid post was the tagging of volunteers. That organically spread the message and achieved better overall results with more page likes and overall engagement

  44. Twitter Trends

  45. Twitter Trends • In the USA the number of Adult Twitter usersis estimated at 34.7 million • There was a 24% increase in monthly active users (MAU) over the last 4 quarters with the total now at 271 million. • Twitter has added 53 million users in the last 12 months

  46. Twitter Trends • Twitter is to be looked at more as a news breaking and information source. • Their latest hiring trends are mass media and television centric • Twitter is pushing towards the integration of television, social and mass media. Source: Jeff Bullas

  49. “How can I respect privacy?” • “Opt-In” philosophy • Develop clear policies and procedures around general and specific use • Children – Parental consent necessary • Photographs – General events vs. Specific instances, sharing vs. posting • Names – Careful with clients, secure permission, beware of “tagging” • Events – Photo policies in advance, considerations such as photos with alcohol • Clients and Individuals with Lived Experience – Exercise caution, especially around HIPAA
