Spreading ideas on Facebook: How to tag people, use a Facebook group to build community, get more likes, and drive people to your website.
At Tech4Good SWFL meetings, we ask people to tell us what the most challenging part of new technology is for their organization. A frequent reply is, “How do I reach more people on Facebook?” During our September meeting, we will explore some answers to this question.
We will discuss and demonstrate how to become efficient and expert in using Facebook to enhance your social media effectiveness. We will learn about tagging as one way to include other people or other organizations in a post, and alert their friends and fans to the post. It also gets the attention of other people and/or page owners. For example, when we post an announcement of meetings for Tech4Good SWFL, we always tag our sponsors; that way our fans can easily connect with them on the same platform.
Creating a Facebook group to provide and enable discussion among members around a central topic is another way in which to build community. We are very fortunate to have Mark Benson as a member of our planning board. Mark has been a community manager for various different Facebook groups. He will walk us through setting up a Facebook group, explain the differences between the options and provide you with a set of activities you can implement to get people involved and connected. He will also share his experience on what works and what doesn’t work in different scenarios.
We will continue with our live streaming experiment and this time we will use Facebook Live to stream the event via the Tech4Good SWFL Facebook page.
We invite all local nonprofit organizations to network, learn, test and explore new technologies, exchange ideas,and best practices. #nptech #t4gswfl #501swfl #net2
