April Fool! | Weekly Roundup
- Question-and-answer apps like Quora are hott these days–is your organization using them to engage supporters? Get started by adding Facebook’s newly revamped Questions application to your nonprofit’s Page, and try posing a question to your “likers.” Let us know how it goes.
- You’ve signed up for Google’s new nonprofits program, and your brand new Google Grant has arrived. Now what? Matt Silverman offers some tips and tricks for AdWords newbies on Mashable.
- Show your love of literacy by checking into foursquare’s newest nonprofit badgeholder: The New York Public Library. The Library’s new location-based campaign offers a spiffy badge and special rewards for frequent visitors.
- And while you’re thinking about location services, why not set up your nonprofit’s Gowalla page with this how-to from Nonprofit Tech 2.0?
- Time for a riddle.
What distracts us from our work, messes around with our privacy settings without asking, and is now used by over half of the U.S. population?

Spring Snow is in the air, and the Roundup is on the move. Starting next Monday, 4/11, we’ll be hitting your inboxes and RSS readers at the beginning of the work week, rather than at the end.
Nothing personal, Friday–it’s been real.
(And no, this is not a sad attempt at an April Fool’s joke. I’m kind of offended that you even suspected me.)
