Want to stop being just another pretty face? How to standout and get attention on Facebook! Join us! September 6th.

Spreading ideas on Facebook: How to tag people, use a Facebook group to build community, get more likes, and drive people to your website.

At Tech4Good SWFL meetings, we ask people to tell us what the most challenging part of new technology is for their organization. A frequent reply is, “How do I reach more people on Facebook?”

During our September meeting, we will explore some answers to this question.
We will discuss and demonstrate how to become efficient and expert in using Facebook to enhance your social media effectiveness. We will learn about tagging as one way to include other people or other organizations in a post, and alert their friends and fans to the post. It also gets the attention of other people and/or page owners. For example, when we post an announcement of meetings for Tech4Good SWFL, we always tag our sponsors; that way our fans can easily connect with them on the same platform.

Mark Benson - Naples, FloridaCreating a Facebook group to provide and enable discussion among members around a central topic is another way in which to build community. We are very fortunate to have Mark Benson as a member of our planning board. Mark has been a community manager for various different Facebook groups. He will walk us through setting up a Facebook group, explain the differences between the options and provide you with a set of activities you can implement to get people involved and connected. He will also share his experience on what works and what doesn’t work in different scenarios.

We will continue with our live streaming experiment and this time we will use Facebook Live to stream the event via the Tech4Good SWFL Facebook page. If you missed last month, we streamed it on Periscope. We also used Screenflow to record the event  and posted it  on YouTube.

When: September 6th, 2016 – 6pm – 8pm
Where: Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 6340 Napa Woods Way, Naples, FL (Google Map & Directions)

Join us for dinner and program along with discussion about Facebook and how to use it for your organization.

“The Warm Up.” All members, coming to their first meeting, will be greeted at 5:30 pm and be introduced to our other members and get the lay of the land, so to speak: what is Tech4Good, the agenda, and some of the rituals we established throughout the meeting.

We invite all local nonprofit organizations to network, learn, test and explore new technologies, exchange ideas,and best practices.  #nptech #t4gswfl #nptechclub #net2

Aug 2nd – Getting Started: Google Analytics & #GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday is just a few weeks away – time to prepare!

GivingTuesday, a worldwide event to celebrate generosity and giving, is November 29th. Each year, we rally our Tech4Good SWFL members get ready for it: plan activities, set up a promotional plan and help with the execution. We aggregate and amplify the message from participating organizations via #swflgives during the weeks before #GivingTuesday. We invite all members, both current, and new members to brainstorm ideas and prepare resources to make this the best SWFL #GivingTuesday.

Google Analytics – what’s it all about, an Introduction

Google Analytics is a powerful and free tool for you to use in analyzing your website. Learn how to track website visitors’ behavior and ultimately online outreach and the impact campaigns have. Every time you do something new or launch a campaign, you would want to ask “What would success look like?” and find a way to measure your progress toward reaching your goals. Google Analytics is a free tool to provide you the data to answer your question.

Join us for dinner and program along with discussion and sharing about your fall campaigns and how you can set the stage for success.

This month we start a new section called “The Warm Up.” All members, coming to their first meeting, will be greeted at 5:30 pm and be introduced to our other members and get the lay of the land, so to speak: what is Tech4Good, the agenda, and some of the rituals we established throughout the meeting.

With this event we will also start testing different ways to videostream the event. In August, we will be using Persicope to broadcast the event. In the following months, we will use of the tools as well, like Facebook Live, Google Hangouts, Livestream, and YouTube Live. If you’d like to volunteer for the Video team, let us know in your reply.

We invite all local nonprofit organizations to network, learn, test and explore new technologies, exchange ideas,and best practices. #nptech #t4gswfl #nptechclub #net2

Record Attendance: 501TechClub SWFL Social Media For Social Good

Using Storify, I collected the plenty of social signals on various platforms. It’s a tool for curation and allows you to showcase photos and content from other people for a topic, almost like a curator puts together an exhibition comprised of various artists into one show. That’s why those  tools are called “Curation Tools”
