Social Media Capital for Nonprofits: How to Accumulate It, Convert It, and Spend It

Social Media Capital for Nonprofits: How to Accumulate It, Convert It, and Spend It | Professional Learning Promotion & Engagement | Scoop.it

Like it or not, social media has become an indispensable part of our lives. Fifteen years ago, many nonprofits were still hesitant to launch an organizational website on the Internet; today, we rarely come across a nonprofit that does not have a Facebook page or Twitter account.

What Happens... When our Imagination is Caught on Fire? | Professional Learning Promotion & Engagement | Scoop.it
“Is this a test Pam? Are you requiring proof of how badly I wanna make you happy so that we can create this beautiful thing together?” The line comes after a challenge by Mary Poppins' P.L.
