As is required of every blogger from time to time, I want to push you all (or “y’all” if you prefer) to some posts that popped up in our Twitter stream. Check it:

  • Is Your Nonprofit Too Social Media Dependent?
    Interesting points and questions are raised in this post from Allyson Kapin at frogloop especially when considering how much pressure is on nonprofits to get involved in the green social media pastures.
    From @Network4Good
  • 17 Areas to Benchmark Your Social Media Optimization
    A simple, consolidating and sobering look at benchmarking your social media efforts.
    From @johnhaydon
  • 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 @kiwanja

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!
