Share Your Thoughts
We love that Heather Mansfield of DIOSA Communications not only has created a MySpace page called Nonprofit Organizations but also that she’s staying on top of it, keeping it current and offering lots of great advice for nonprofit organizations looking to maintain a presence in the social-networking stratosphere. Guess you could say she’s practicing what she preaches … and that’s a good thing.
Earlier this week, Heather posted a blog asking her MySpace “friends” for advice they’d like to share with other organizations about their MySpace experiences.
Here, you can read Heather’s original blog and comments that had come in by the next day (pretty much as written, but some excerpted and cleaned up a little for clarity).
If you don’t already have one, we suggest that you start a MySpace account for your organization and immediately add Nonprofit Organizations as a friend. Then you can add your own comments, read others’ comments as they come in and, most importantly, be privy to all of the useful stuff the page has to offer.
And, of course, feel free to share your thoughts on this subject directly with FundRaising Success, if you’d like, by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or leaving a comment at the end of the story.

What is your advice for nonprofit organizations on MySpace?!
Really … this is important. More and more nonprofits are getting on MySpace each day in hopes of reaching out to the 110,000,000 people that regularly use MySpace. They are here for a lot of reasons. The most important reason being that they want to get information out there about their cause and their organization. They are trying to make the world a better place. They are also hoping, of course, that they might find some new online donors or supporters to sign up for their e-newsletter. That’s reasonable. Nonprofiits need supporters to continue their work.
