Social media of all kinds – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and whatever is hot tomorrow – can deliver real results including:

• Increasing your online fundraising
• Getting the right people to attend your events
• Engaging the public in advocacy for land use decisions
• Building your email list
