Social Media: The term Social Media refers to the use of web-based and mobile technologies to turn communication into an interactive dialogue.

Web 2.0: The term Web 2.0 is associated with web applications that facilitate participatory information sharing, interoperability, user-centered design, and collaboration on the World Wide Web. Advice Contact Learn More Multi-channel Fundraising
It has become increasingly common for new donors to give their first gift online.
Online-acquired donors are significantly younger and tend to have higher household incomes than mail-acquired donors.
Online-acquired donors tend to give much larger gifts than mail-acquired donors.
However, online-acquired donors tend to have slightly lower retention rates than mail-acquired donors.
Every year, large proportions of online-acquired donors switch from online giving to offline sources — primarily to direct mail. The reverse is not true, however; only a tiny percentage of mail-acquired donors give online in later years.
Robust direct mail programs drive up the retention and long-term value of new donors acquired online. If you are looking for some measure of your reach in social media that is better then number of fans, here are some places to start. None are perfect but by looking at a few you can get an idea of what metrics can narrow in on the quality of the interacations.
hootsuite.com Several groups have higher than average levels of smartphone adoption, including:

The financially well-off and well-educated – 59% of adults living in a household earning income of $75,000 or more are smartphone owners; 48% of those with a college degree own smartphones.

Those under the age of 45 – 58% of Americans between the ages of 25 and 34 now own a smartphone as do 49% of those ages 18-24 and 44% of those ages 35-44. Even among those with a household income of $30,000 or less, smartphone ownership rates for those ages 18-29 are equal to the national average.

African-Americans and Latinos – 44% of blacks and Latinos are smartphone users.

Urban and suburban residents are roughly twice as likely to own a smartphone as those living in rural areas, and employment status is also strongly correlated with smartphone ownership.

I have never used twitter or any of the other sites. we serve a low- to moderate- income population and there is a sense of “digital divide” with some of our clients not having internet access. We’d like to develop a system for tracking/recruiting/engaging volunteers and expand our visibility in the community. At 23, I’ve had a Facebook account since my sophomore year of high school. My challenges in my new position are keeping the posts fresh and intriguing and gaining new and consistent followers. Biggest challenge is devoting time to doing it well. I would really like to learn more about using hashtags on twitter and tagging in facebook. Have a Facebook page that I rarely use and don't know how to get around in. Want to know sites I can go to to keep up with latest trends. I attempted to put my agencies presence on Facebook. I think I failed miserably! I never use twitter and linked in, as I feel like I just don’t have the time to stay on time of all of these sites. I’m on Linked In and Facebook, but don’t really use them how to know what’s appropriate for business people to post and not to post Activity -

Online discussion is a major part of Twitter. The goal is to earn some authority for your social media brand, but remember to have fun doing it. A good mix of personal and professional tweets is best. Don't just promote yourself, promote others as well. The general premise behind Twitter is I help you, you help me and together we make the world a more social and informative place.



http://nonprofits.change.org/blog/view/10_twitter_tips_for_nonprofit_organizations Twitter is a great way to get the pulse of the conversation. First search your organization's name. Then search the issues your organization cares about. Take note of the code words that start with the "#" symbol. These are called hash tags and they connect tweets. For example if you were tweeting about health news you might add #health to the end of your tweet. Anyone can do this and people can now more easily zero in on the health related tweets. Anyone can add a hash tag. You can even make your own tag up and try to get others to use it.

Be sure to look at Twitter's advanced search.
