  • 3. What is Social Media?
    First and foremost… it’s social.
    It’s not a “static” thing.
    It’s community and relationship building.
    It’s on your laptop, phone, iPad, & anywhere else people access the internet.
    It is increasingly becoming integrated into every aspect of our lives.
    It’s also… not going away.

  • 4. YOU Are Social Media
    Every single one of you has the power, as an individual to reach more people than ever before!
    Traditional Media is increasingly less impactful and your supporter’s personal stories and good word are increasingly more powerful.
    What can one person with a few online friends do…?

  • 10. ZOMG – Oh Noes 
    Breathe…
    You don’t need to know it all.
    You can’t break the internet.
    Remember – Social Media isn’t about the media.
    It’s about the people.
    And you’re already good at people! (I hope)

  • 11. Dew it!
    There are a few platforms and tools you need to know about.
    They’re (mostly) easy.
    They’re free.
    And you can leverage enormous success if you give it time and approach it strategically.
    Lets dew it!

  • 12. Facebook
    51% of Canadians are using Facebook… (fewer of us vote)
    Charities (and most businesses) are HORRIBLE at Facebook
    What you must learn to do on Facebook
    Build friend lists
    Know the difference between groups & pages
    Place Advertisements (test and retest)
    http://www.socialbakers.com/facebook-statistics/canada
    Talk with people

  • 13. Dinosaurs, Dodo’s and Privacy
    Privacy is extinct! If you wouldn’t say it to grandma, don’t say it on Facebook. (or Twitter or… well just don’t say it)
    It doesn’t matter what your privacy settings are – someone, somewhere, knows it’s you… and you should assume that means everyone, everywhere can and/or will learn what you’ve posted.
    That said friends lists can help you limit what people see and don’t see.
    www.LauriePringle.com

  • 14. Friend-lists
    Allow you to segment and direct what you share on personal profile.
    It’s polite and enables you to be prolific in sharing, without spamming people’s newsfeed full of irrelevant posts.
    Not something you can use on “Pages”, but it’s good to know as we become “public” personalities and people view our profiles.
    Tip: The left margin is your friend.
    www.LauriePringle.com

  • 15. Page or Group?
    Groups are linked to individuals. Pages are organizational individuals.
    Groups can send emails that arrive in an “inbox”. Pages send “updates” which often go ignored.
    Pages can use applications & social ads.
    Groups have more control over who participates… like a private club.
    No conversion. Choose Wisely.

  • 16. Twitter
    The social network people love to hate!
    It’s a great place to have a conversation.
    Not as easy to get started as Facebook.
    www.LauriePringle.com
    16
  • 17. Setting Up Twitter in Ten
    Short name that is easily identified with your brand.
    Make it clear who “tweets” on the account.
    Be location specific. Don’t say “worldwide” or “global”.
    Have a great bio that’s fun, informative & welcoming.
    Create a custom background: a nice photo works.
    Twitter.com sucks. Use a 3rd party app.
    www.LauriePringle.com

  • 18. Finding people to Follow
    Twitter Email link (yahoo, rogers, gmail – not Outlook )
    Find people & Advanced Search
    LinkedIn
    WeFollow, Twello & Listorious
    Look at who other people follow and follow them.
    Topic search and respond where appropriate.
    Most importantly… talk to people – and help them find you.
    www.LauriePringle.com

  • 19. TweetDeck
    There are many 3rd party apps to choose from. I like TweetDeck. http://www.tweetdeck.com
    Tweetdeck allows you to read and post on multiple platforms, segment lists and filter in real time.
    Tweetdeck makes Twitter Twemendous
    Other topics – finding followers, bit.ly, Twitpic, mobile tweeting & TweetUps.
    Co Tweet, Thready & Measurement
    www.LauriePringle.com

  • 20. Tweet Tips
    When talking about others “tag” their account using the @ sign. (this is how people follow/find you)
    If the @ sign is first – it goes just to that individual. It will also be seen by anyone following BOTH accounts.
    Private messages are Direct Messages. You can only “DM” people following you.
    Use Hashtags for events & topical posts.
    #FollowFriday & #CharityTuesday.
    Don’t auto-follow.
    Do thank people who follow.

  • 21. Twit-iquette
    Listen, reply, retweet:
    You wouldn’t go in to strange place and ask everyone to give you something… don’t do it on Twitter.
    Read before you retweet.
    Add a comment (where possible), before you post a retweet.
    Content matters… but so does personality.
    Be fun. It counts.
    Links first, phone second (or not at all).
    Thank people often.
    www.LauriePringle.com

  • 22. Other Tools?
    To Tweet Live – or Co-Tweet?
    Most Tweets should be done live. However…
    There are a number of services that allow you to automate.
    Schedule Tweets sparingly.
    Use mobile apps to tweet on the run.
    For iPhone I like TweetAgora
    For Bb I like UberTwitter
    Bit.ly
    Nutshellmail
