Join Sadia Kalam from Cause Effective and Erin Barnes from ioby for a webinar on reasons to use social media and four easy ways to get started. We'll cover case studies of what's happening online that you're missing out on and the tactics that the social sector is using to make real change using the most robust digital tools. And for those who cower in the shadow of the digerati, we'll cover four smart ways you can make the most of your limited time. This webinar will not go over the same old, tired, boring top ten best practices of using social channels, but we will give you a list of those resources to go to. This is a participatory, thought-provoking hour on maximizing your potential by tapping the best of what's out there.
