To reach new audiences, sow seeds in new and emerging social media platforms.

Q2: How do you decide if you should join a new social media platform?
Q3: Based on the demographics you serve, where can you find your audience on social media?
Q4: What do you do when things go wrong on new platforms?
Q5: What are your favorite creative examples of nonprofits on new social media platforms?
Q6: What tools and resources allow your content to cross-pollinate across social media channels?
Q7: How do you predict new tech tools and sites will affect nonprofit communications in the next 5 years?
