Social Networking is Social: Facebook

FacebookOn Tuesday,  August 11 at noon, we met with nonprofit professionals in ACPL’s computer classroom and talked about using Facebook for nonprofits. We covered:

  • Considerations before your organization adopts 2.0 Tools
  • Useful resources for Facebook
  • How to Use Facebook

The class was our experiment in encouraging audience participation to create a social learning environment for social networking. We had fun talking about privacy and personal versus professional voice.

Join us for discussions on Twitter, followed by Flickr and some Google tools in September.  Register for Social Networking is Social here.
