More than half of Canadians use social media. Does your non-profit make the most of free social media tools to recruit volunteers, attract clients, and influence decision makers?
Anyone who is interested in making the most of social media. You should have your own accounts on both Facebook and Twitter - either for yourself personally or for your organization. This workshop assumes you already have a basic knowledge of Facebook and Twitter.
