Harry Potter and the Weekly Roundup
Harry doesn’t really have much to do with this week’s Roundup–I’m just very excited to see the movie.
- Want more “likes” on your Facebook posts? Try asking. A recent study from Momentus Media suggests that you can more than double your interactions by simply asking your readers to click the “like” button.
- If you’re considering how to weave QR codes into your communications, get excited–there’s a wealth of interesting reads on the web this week. AdLibbing rounds up some tips and examples for nonprofits, Mashable describes a group using QR codes in an advocacy campaign, and Event360 shares some thoughts on how to incorporate the 2-D barcodes into your marketing and events.
- Ever consider hosting a Twitter chat? Whether you answered “yeah!” or “what?”, Brian Murray on Likeable Media has you covered with a handy how-to.
- YouTube is making some changes–read all about it and what it means for your nonprofit’s Channel on Nonprofit Tech 2.0.
- Remember that new Google Plus thing that just came out? It’s already accrued over 10 million users sharing and receiving over a billion items a day. Not bad for two weeks on the job.
In other news, I’ve decided that writing the Roundup is too much fun to keep it all to myself. So Maddy, one of Big Duck’s Strategists and a regular guest Roundup-er, will be taking over the Roundup on alternate weeks starting next Monday. I know you’ll enjoy her wit and smarts as much as we Ducks do.
Visit the Duck Call every Monday for our weekly roundup of interesting reads from the online world of nonprofit communications. Liz (@elizabethricca) and Maddy (@maddymilan) take turns sharing useful links and other nonprofit fun.
