PCN’s Boston/New England chapter is hosting a webinar on Social Media Best Practices for Supporting Organizing on Thursday, March 7, 2013, 1 PM Eastern Time. The workshop will be led by Boston trainer/consultant Jason Pramas. Register by March 6th.
Social Media best practices: why, what and how?
Activist organizations around the world have successfully used social media to widely broadcast their cause, raise funds, and mobilize their constituency. For small social change organizations, it’s a challenge to figure out the best ways of using these tools to highlight their cause or organization.
- Why is it important for an organization to have a social media presence?
- What is/are the best social media platform(s) to use?
- How do we know if your social media campaign is a success (how do you measure effectiveness)?
Jason Pramas, founder and editor/publisher of Open Media Boston and long-time progressive activist/organizer, will help guide us with his experience using various social media tools and help answer some these critical questions.
Although this is an event by and for the PCN Boston/New England chapter, all PCNers and allies are welcome, as long as you RSVP.
