20 Links To Get Your Nonprofit Started With Social Media

I think I’m a bit of a late bloomer when it comes to social media. I’ve had a personal Facebook page for a while, but I started blogging and tweeting just 7 months ago. While I am still learning, I can tell you the benefits became apparent early on. It’s helped build some relationships, has allowed me to develop my personal brand, and has even become a learning tool in itself.  It does, however, require you to invest something invaluable … time.

If your organization has just decided to jump in as well, this post is for you.  I’ve put together this list of resources to help you make the best of the time you have for social media. The list includes links to information on getting started, creating social media policies for your organization, measuring success and some other things I thought might be useful for someone who is just jumping in. I hope you find it helpful!
