Today was the second session of the E-mediat workshop on social media for NGOs.
Ayman Itani was showing us, as NGO, the importance of the Facebook Page and how it can take the place of the website, since most of the readers check the Facebook page more to take all the information they need.
So we first have to have an interesting picture, it can be our logo with a slogan to show more what we do, and people can search for us more easily.
The information about us should be accurate and preferably not very long, since people nowadays don't really like reading long things.
Phone numbers, fax, e-mail and website are a must to catch the people and keep them coming.
Our Facebook Page should be always updated, and if sometimes we don't have any activities going on, at least put what we did during the week.
Then he showed us how to do a Blog for our NGO on Blogger and how to customize it. Also Blogs should be always updated on all the events and activities we do.
It was an interesting session, see you next on July 27, 28.
