Do they have the largest followings on Facebook and Twitter? Are they the most engaging? How are people responding and interacting? With social media use booming, we went ahead and dove in. With data ranging from the most comments to the most followers, we got it covered. of NP websites contain at least one social media button. 70% SOCIAL MEDIA ENGAGEMENT ON HOMEPAGE 92% AMONG 50 HIGHEST-INCOME NONPROFITS 22% 12% Linkedin RSS Feed Flickr 90% YouTube Twitter 92% FaceBook Breakdown By Type: FACEBOOK FANS & TWITTER FOLLOWERS BY INCOME LEVEL You might assume that the more money an organization has, the more engaged they are in social media and the dedication to see it flourish, but is that assumption valid? No, that correlation does not always match up. The white bars denote how many Facebook fans each organization has. Black bars show Twitter followers. See if they match up to their net income!

Universities, 501c4's and donor-advised funds are not included in the report. During the week of October 3rd we took this list and generated metrics to determine who was proactively and effectively utilizing social media. We analyzed the following metrics: • Social Network Presence on Homepage• Date of sign up on Twitter • Number of posts over the course of 2 months (Aug. 2011-Sept. 2011), • Tweet Grader score . Number of Tweets over the course of 2 months (Aug. 2011-Sept. 2011) via • Number of Likes and comments over the course of 2 months Twitter followers • The number they follow on Twitter • Total number of Facebook fans/Likes It was these metrics that led us to determine just how efficiently the top 50 nonprofits by income utilize social media, and whether income has an effect on their social media presence. The bottom line is that income does not increase a nonprofit's visibility and interactions in the social media world. Some of the most social media sawy organizations are in the bottom quarter bracket in terms of income, yet they are clearly active on social media. It's about fostering conversations and interactions, not money. These are the keys to keeping up in the fast-paced arena of social networks. craigconnects helps connect people of good will for the common good by helping groups who're really effective in areas including military families and veterans, helping find good. eftective nonprofits. and who can help restore traditional journalism values like factchecking Oa1 CRAGCONECTS RESEARCH E DESIGH DRUG CONNECTS.ORG RAD The information presented in this infographic is for illustrative purposes only.
