Project Research Findings 2

After doing more research about how non profit organizations can make use of online social networking tools to help them create awareness to people. All these wiki, blogs, and other social tools can also help increase efficient ways to collaborate and share knowledge among workers so whether which line of organization they are in, they were be able to plan and get the information they need for success. In order to do that, they must first find out who their target audiences are before using any of the social networking platforms as they cant own every single one of them. However, being online isn’t enough to create awareness, the organization itself has to be active and keep their audiences engaged. There is also a survey by Social Impact team that  86% of the individuals agreed that an organization’s site and participation in their social media keep their audiences more engaged in its activities. As for National Addiction Management Service (NAMS), their target audiences are quite wide, FaceBook would be a better choice for them to reach out for potential donors, volunteers and such.

They could then use FaceBook as a micro fundraising by implementing a FaceBook widget by “Ammado” which is also just another social network just like FaceBook or MySpace. It’s primary objective is to help people and non profit organization worldwide to raise funds and donate online and besides the online donation capabilities, they also offer giving circles and vouchers.
