Create Your Nonprofit Page on Google+

Nonprofit organizations can now create a Google+ page. Here’s a great tutorial on how to do it at Nonprofit Tech 2.0. I highly recommend following this blog for tech and social media guidance focused on the needs of nonprofits.

You already have a Facebook page, right? Are you asking, “Why do this?” You may find additional followers and interact in a different way. While the Google+ page looks similar to Facebook, Google+ organizes contacts a little differently, in “circles,” that keep your groups of people organized into family, friends, acquaintances, etc.  There is the ability to video-chat with up to 10 people at a time. At this point it doesn’t seem to have the same depth as Facebook but the  number of people using Google+ is growing.

Here’s a brief article at The Chronicle of Philanthropy’s site with a few suggestions about options and page examples.

Facebook, Nonprofits, and ROI

Nonprofit organizations should use all “free” tools for promoting the organization.  Though you don’t have to pay to create a fan page on Facebook, it does take staff and/or volunteer time to create and monitor the page and that is time not being spent on something else.

I suggest reading a blog post, “Four Reasons Why Nonprofits Should Reconsider Facebook,”  at Nonprofit Tech 2.0 that discusses why you should weigh the time spent on Facebook (in particular).  The idea of considering time spent on social media and “free” tools is worth evaluating periodically.

How Can Web 2.0 work for Nonprofits?

What is Web 2.0?  It’s the second generation of internet tools that facilitate interactive communication.  It’s about collaboration and information sharing: Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Flickr.  Lists and bookmarking sites.  All nonprofits need to have an online presence but simply maintaining a website is one-way communication.  Social media is networking — two-way communication.  (more…)
