Mindful or Mindfull Society Media

Description:
All around us, we hear more and more about the connectedness of our world. Local nonprofits are tapping the power of connection by forming collaborations, alliances, and networks to address complex challenges and expand their organizations’ impact. Thriving in the 21st century and in the new economic reality goes beyond simply applying social media tools like Facebook or Twitter and requires a mindset where openness and authenticity are essential. Nonprofits using social media tools and practices in their strategy may discover that they need to refine their practices with reliable and measurable data from their social media efforts. This process can seem daunting in an age when information comes at us from every direction. How can we move from keeping our head above water to thriving with sustainable practices?
