Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

Just testing this new feature in typepad that lets you automatically cross publish to Facebook profile. See larger image here. It didn't prompt me and it automatically published it. I had to be logged into my Facebook account though. What's nice about it is that it puts a link to your blog post in a mini feed. Higher up on profile real estate and one or two less steps than using the Facebook bookmarklet. Right now I was using the blog friends feed.

One such platform was Typepad. Typepad is a paid service based on Movable Type , a very popular blogging platform, that is proprietary. Add a few important plugins, and I’m back to where I was just a few days ago on Typepad.

Movable Type goes Open Source

Zen and the Art of Nonprofit Technology

A ways back, Six Apart promised that it would open source MovableType , their flagship software product, and the software that underlies their TypePad service. This blog (and my personal blog ) were on TypePad for years, and I rather like the MoveableType interface and feature set.

Five Reasons Why Nonprofits Who Utilize Social Media Should Also Blog

Nonprofit Tech for Good

Blogging tools like WordPress and TypePad automatically add the code for page titles in every new blog post you publish to the Web. Buzz words like “Community” and “Engagement” have become very popular over the last 12-18 months in reference to sites like Facebook, Twitter and MySpace, but blogging and blogging platforms (like Blogger, WordPress, TypePad) gave birth to the idea of a social web. There are currently 133 million blogs worldwide.

Five Steps to Finding ROI

Amy Sample Ward

Whether it’s a Wordpress, Blogger, Typepad, or whatever, you have access to built-in web analytics or the option to use Google Analytics. Many organizations struggle with the idea of ROI and metrics when it comes to social media because so much of it feels, well, untouchable.
