There’s a great new resource available for nonprofits hoping to sharpen their social media “chops.”   Janet Fouts and Beth Kanter have just released #SOCIALMEDIA NONPROFIT tweet Book01: 140 Bite-Sized Ideas for Nonprofit Social Media Engagement.

The book provides guidance, all in 140 character entries, for how nonprofits can get the most out of social media. 

The book is itself a product of social media.  Janet Fouts and Beth Kanter crowdsourced ideas on Twitter and their blogs.  A group of 30 social media and nonprofit experts contributed to the book.  I am honored to be among those who contributed.

The book includes the following sections:

Section 1: What Can Social Media Do For MY Organization?
Section 2: How Can I Convince Naysayers?
Section 3: How Do We Measure Social Media Engagement?
Section 4: Twitter Best Practices
Section 5: Facebook Best Practices
Section 6: Forums and Groups
Section 7: Managing Volunteers
Section 8: Creating Evangelists
Section 9: Fundraising
Section 10: Social Media Efficiency


It’s a great resource, and even better, all profits from the book will be donated to the Nonprofit Technology Network (NTEN).  Get your copy here.
