Re: [ocr-135] CoTweet vs Hootsuite vs Awareness

At DisabledCommunity.Org, we face an interesting��dilemma trying to reach seniors and people with disabilities, many of whom are low income and in what I call the 'Lost Generation'��because they��do not have access to a computer or to email or the internet.
��
This makes it tricky to get information out to��this target audience for events such as this Saturday's Holiday Gala, Resource Faire, and "Everyone Can Dance!" event.
��
We have outreached using email to the agencies who support our audience -- many of whom are wired, and in turn, they have announced the event in their newsletters and on their websites
and within their communities.
��
Graphic skills, flyers and posters were donated in-kind��via one of our sponsors.�� We
mailed the posters and flyers to the 20 sponsoring organizations to post at their sites.�� Another
sponsor took flyers into the senior centers, ARC, Janet Pomeroy and other community sites for distribution.
��
Additionally, we��have been using CiviCRM to email to a wide base.��We also are getting the word out using��Facebook, Twitter, and��ICal. One of our volunteers��purchased some ads on Facebook (on their own) to get the word out.�� (I tried this last year, but could not track results.)�� We had over 200 attendees last year��-�� 2009's photos.
��
Each year is an exciting new world and a continuous learning experience on how the grapevine works across the generational divide.
��
Best,
��

Hi fellow members,

I'm the speaker for this month's meetup (San Francisco Online Community Meetup Group Monthly Meetup), and I wanted to pick your brains on the social tools you are using to post to Twitter/Facebook. ��Are any of you using Hootsuite, CoTweet, or Awareness? ��I'd love your feedback if so. ��Thanks!
