To Social Network or Not to Social Network, That is the Question

How do you decide if and how your nonprofit should use social networking? That's the question on a lot of folk's minds this week:

The Wild Apricot Blog linked to 7 posts about the Best Web 2.0 and Social Networking Tools for Nonprofits as part of the Carnival of Nonprofit Consultants yesterday.

Idealware has an article up by Brett Bonfield entitled Should Your Nonprofit Use Social Networking Sites?

Network for Good's Nonprofit 911 Training on January 23rd is How to Use Social Networking Websites to Recruit New Supporters.

And you can join a discussion about Social Networking: Fruitful or Disappointing? in TechSoup's Emerging Tech Forum.

What do you think? What are your tips and tricks, your success stories and failures, your advice to nonprofits that are trying to decide.
