What Your Nonprofit Should Be Posting on Each Social Media Platform
You might be asking yourself, what type of posts make the most sense for each platform?
In order to be successful, you have to know the ins and outs of what content resonates with your audiences, who your audiences are and what type of content you should be posting. You have to be aware that some things that you post on Twitter, might not be fit for Facebook, and some posts you make on LinkedIn won’t suit you well on Instagram.
Facebook is a platform with a wide demographic range. However, it tends to gather a bit of an older audience than some of the other platforms. Facebook allows you to type out longer posts with no character limit, giving you a wide ability to tell stories.
