Top Five Social Networking Sites

I spend so much of my time on social networks that it’s hard for me to remember that not all nonprofits use them. But you should! Social networks, like those below, are an ideal way to create community, distribute information and learn from others. Plus, these are all free services, and free marketing is a nonprofit’s best friend.

So, as part of our end-of-the-year-top-five-blow-out, here are our five favorite social networking sites:

Choose Your (Tech) Weapon

We've been invited by a client that serves synagogues to put together a series of quick-hit webinars based on common problems their constituency has with technology. We're still not sure which will be the most welcomed by the community, so I wanted to open up to you for your vote. In exchange, we'll host a presentation on the same topic for no charge. You can post your thoughts by clicking the comments link here or by contacting me directly. Which would you rather learn?
  • Put your first video on YouTube
  • Create your first podcast
  • Start your first blog

Free Love: Photoshop Express

A sadly underfunded client of mine who can't get money for a full-blown version of Photoshop told me about Adobe Photoshop Express.

Express is the latest of of SaaS (Software as a Service) offerings. SaaS boils down to online versions of the kinds of software you're used to buying as a package you install on your computer. Like, say, Photoshop. But instead of paying $700 for the mega version, you pay nothing for this online version.
