For many nonprofits resources are scarce, (time, money, manpower, etc.) social media is usually left for an intern or is a secondary responsibility for the youngest member of the organization. For many people today, Facebook is how they receive their news, stay connected, and learn. A strong social media presence is also crucial in order to increase your SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and to drive traffic to your website. 

Facebook Notes  

If you are like most nonprofits on Facebook and have experienced dramatic loss in reach and engagement over the last year, then experimenting with publishing Notes on Facebook to increase reach and engagement as an alternative to spending on adverting is worth a shot. On the Nonprofit Tech for Good Facebook Page Notes are currently receiving 3X the reach and engagement as photos and links.
