Why do you think millions go to Facebook or Twitter by the minute.) 4. Make your site easy to find (Every NPO and those serving NPO’s should have a social web presence.

  69. 69. Is Technology a Bother to Fundraising or is it Essential? Some Thoughts to Ponder on Social Networks  “My own "ah ha!" moment came recently on my birthday. In my personal email account, I found 33 notifications from Facebook that friends had left birthday greetings on my Facebook page, but only two regular emails with birthday greetings.” (54 yr old male)  “Most interactions now come from my social networks. Not only do my birthday greetings come via Facebook and Twitter, but almost all of them were made where other people could see them. Those public greetings prompted several others to add their own.” (52 yr old female)  “Email messaging — the main tool of most nonprofits for "push" marketing — will need to meet a higher and higher bar in terms of relevance, or it will be increasingly ignored.” (61 yr old male) Giving Institute Summer Symposium — San Juan 2009 | Jay B.

  70. 70. Is Technology a Bother to Fundraising or is it Essential? More Thoughts on Social Networks . . . “When I was in sixth grade, I was crazy about the girl who sat next to me, but I didn't think she could possibly have the same feelings about me. When Mrs. Green changed everyone's seats, the girl sent me a note through an intermediary, Sherry, who was now sitting next to me. The note said, "Do you like me?" I turned around and saw her sheepishly smiling. After recovering from a brief but intense panic attack, I sent back a note that told her I did. Ah, first love!” “Last week I got another note from her. This time the intermediary was not Sherry, though. It was Facebook.” “Facebook is affecting my life in ways I wouldn't have imagined just a few short months ago. In addition to the innocent hello from my first flame, I have had a dialogue with a cousin I haven't seen in 25 years.” “When you think about the metrics that matter most to people -- audience reach, composition and engagement -- you realize that there is no site in the world that will be able to compete with Facebook in delivering results!” Kevin Mannion, On-Line Publishing, February , 2009 Giving Institute Summer Symposium — San Juan 2009 | Jay B.

  75. 75. Is Technology a Bother to Fundraising or is it Essential? 2009 Facebook Demographic and Statistics Report  The most troubling statistics we’ve seen are that there are 16.5% less high school users, and 21.7% less college users. There have been rumors that these younger user groups are being alienated by their parents joining the service, and this data seems to prove it.
