- Frontline SMS in Agriculture
Frontline SMS is a great tool that allows Nonprofits to take advantage of group text messaging. While, to many in the United States, mass text messaging seems like a strange sort of outreach, mobile phones are becoming the ubiquitous communication device in countries where widespread computer ownership or internet access is limited. As you can imagine, the idea has a lot of potential and in this post, Kiwanja highlights Frontline’s intersection with agriculture.
From Twitter to mass text-messaging, social action groups all around the world are taking advantage of new technology. What tools is your org taking advantage of? Let us post your story!
