I took part in the University of Georgia’s Grady College Connect conference by Skype yesterday. We were discussing the role of social media in communications by non-profit organisations. The consensus was that it plays a supportive role to main line communications by creating some forms of awareness but has little effect on generating funds or creating relationships. Indeed, some Twestival campaigns have failed badly on creating new income.
