The team at TechSoup has brewed up a select menu of tools and strategies to provide a social media curriculum to conference attendees on how to explore Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, and applications for engaging volunteers and supporters around the world.  Attendees can join a tour of the Nonprofit Commons in Second Life or learn how to use digital storytelling and Facebook for quick and easy updates to keep connected to supporters. Quick tips and tools will be provided on how to get started as well as support for more advanced users.  Also, engage in a mixed reality event as avatars and representatives from nonprofits around the world discuss their work both virtually and in their communities.

  • Amy,

    I’m really looking forward to seeing you, Elliot and Susan in New York. We’re so excited to have so many great presentations from NetSquared & TechSoup Global.

    Counting the days…

    Jessica

    • Thanks for the support, Jessica! I’m looking forward to it as well 🙂

  • Would *love* to nail down a meetup with you, Amy – #10ntc flew by way too fast. Bonus points if we can get you, me, Jessica, Beth, Susan in one place at the same time (a mixed reality meetup?). Have also really been wanting to meet Kari Saratovsky and Britt Bravo IRL. Here’s to face-to-face connections!

    • Hey Laura-

      Wow; that’s a list of some of my most favorite people 🙂 I would love a gathering of all of us to happen! And, would also just love to grab a coffee with you, too. Let’s make it happen!

  • Sounds like a great lineup, Amy. Wish I could be there!

    • Thanks, Britt! I wish you could be there as well 🙂
      One of these days we will be in the same city at the same time again, I hope!
