These days nearly every nonprofit has people tasked with maintaining the organization’s presence online. Some are specialized for social media, others create content for the web, most of them do it all.
According to a recent post from Beth Kanter’s Blog, these professionals have a lot to learn from each other. At this year’s SXSW Conference, Beth ran a session dedicated to nonprofit social media managers to getting in a room together to see what ideas they could share, and what practices were working best.
Beth calls it peer learning, and she argues that it is a great way for nonprofit organizations to identify what is working well online and share learning experiences. It seems that there is a new movement building to keep this going, and there are some great tools to make it easier and more effective.
