And, while we’re on the topic of social media, here are some resources recommended by Melinda Johnson, Decoda’s Communications Manager.

Useful Websites

Really good, clear language information on tech, social media and marketing for non-profits.

Dr. Sarah Eaton

Great tips on communications, PR and media for non-profits.

Useful Applications

Tweetdeck: http://www.tweetdeck.com/
Hootsuite: http://hootsuite.com
These are both web applications that let you manage multiple Twitter and Facebook accounts from one interface. These make your life much easier, because you can post to Twitter and Facebook at the same time, from one place. Both systems are quite similar, but the features and user interface are slightly different, so some people will like one, and some people with like the other.

Let us know if you have any suggestions for social media resources you’d like to share.
