Friday Feed - Great resources from the web - August 5, 2011

In order to stay up to date on what's going on in the world of technology - and nonprofit technology in particular - I follow quite a few blogs and twitter feeds. There's a lot of great content out there but if you don't have the time to stay on top of things (and even if you do!) it can be overwhelming.

How to Write a Social Media Policy

As I discussed in my previous post on social media policy, I think there is a lot of value in taking the time to put some thought into how you want your organization to approach social media and formalize it in a document that everyone can share and understand. In this post I’m going to share some examples of nonprofit social media policies and discuss how you can create your own.
