The Power of a Facebook Share
I didn’t realize how much power and influence a Facebook status share had. Since starting a social media based nonprofit, I have learned that the statuses that go on Facebook have power and influence. People want to be a part of something bigger than themselves. People that share our statuses on Transition Furniture do not always have the items we ask for but through every share, they are reaching people that we are not connected with yet.
Here are a few lessons I have learned:
–People want to be a part of a cause
-People want to connect with a need
-It is not about how you word your status but it is about the story you share
-You don’t have to know everything about social media to use it
-More shares leads to more likes, which gains a greater audience for your cause
-We have gotten more furniture/appliances donated through shares than posts on our own Facebook page
These are just a few lessons that I have learned through meeting peoples needs through social media.
