Considering the mandatory roll-out of Facebook Timelines to all pages on March 30th, I thought I’d share this cool resource.

I came across Nonprofit Tech 2.0 blog a couple of months ago. It was created and is managed by Heather Mansfield, a pioneer in utilizing social media for the nonprofit sector. She has fifteen years of experience utilizing the Internet for fundraising, community building, and advocacy. To date, she’s presented more than 100 social media and mobile technology trainings throughout the United States, Canada, and Asia as well as over 500 webinars to audiences worldwide. More on her Bio here.

She wrote a post earlier this month detailing her choice of the 11 best and most inspiring Non-Profit Facebook Timelines she has come across, which includes, Amnesty International, International Rescue committee and many more organisations doing amazing work.

Another interesting post, demonstrates a step-by-step guide to custom design your Non-Profit’s Facebook Timeline profile. According to her blog post, it definitely entails a lot more than just uploading a profile picture.

Read her guidelines here. 

She is also the author of  Social Media for Social Good: A How-To Guide for Nonprofits, which I would love to get my hands on! 

Enjoy using social media strategies to promote your non-profit effectively and to raise awareness about your mission!
