What Do Facebook’s New Timeline Apps Mean for Nonprofits? | Digital fundraising | Scoop.it

Remember last September when Facebook announced all those changes to individual profiles, including the timeline? One of the changes was that your friends and fans can do more than “Like” or “Comment” on Facebook. Three new actions were announced at the time, including: Read, Watch, Listen to help people better understand what their friends are doing online. Facebook called it the “Open Graph” and the pr people called “A revolution to the whole meaning of listening to music together or family T.V.” You can read more about how it works from the Facebook developer notes.

New guide to fundraising with Facebook published | UK Fundraising

New guide to fundraising with Facebook published | UK Fundraising | Digital fundraising | Scoop.it
UK Fundraising's Howard Lake has published a new guide offering practical tips on how to fundraise using Facebook.

 

I was surprised to find very few fundraising-specific guides for charities and nonprofits in using Facebook, so I've pulled together 40 tips (I've squeezed in 43 in fact) based on what I've learned and shared over the last few years. They're practical tips, almost all of which can be implemented quickly and at very low cost.
