Is Social Media Right for Your Organization?

Connection Cafe

Author: Jordan Viator. Guest post from John Chen, @ johnYSchen , DC-based nptechie and nonprofiteer. It's evident that social media has become ingrained into our daily lives.

Organizations are hearing: “You need to be on social media.”
