Social Media- How can you use it to your advantage?

Social Media has taken over nearly all of our lives in some way or another. It is one of the quickest and easiest ways of getting your message out to a large and diverse group of people. The New York Times featured an article last week about  how the American Red Cross  as well as other disaster relief organizations are using Facebook, Twitter and other social media tools to raise money for the Haiti relief effort. People can simply text in donations with their mobile phones which is leading people to be more aware and allows them  way able to contribute firsthand. Read about it here.

This week the Hub is highlighting the importance of using social media as a tool to advance social entrepreneurship and social ventures.

Tonight, Noah Flower, will be leading a discussion,Tech 2.0, in which he will be sharing insights into “working wikiliy.” He will talk about the research and client work done by the Monitor Institute in the realm of social media as a strategic tool in the the social sector. It is a great opportunity to learn how to use this new phenomenon in your work and meet other like minded entrepreneurs. RSVP at http://techdiscussion.eventbrite.com/.
