The November meetup of the #NFN4Good Net2 Local group featured an exploration of using social sites to post and share photos. During the meeting, participants learned how to use photo-sharing sites such as Flickr, Pinterest, Instagram, Vine, Eyeem and G+ for posting event photos, community building and outreach.
Instagram is hot. With 100 million monthly active users and over 40 million photos uploaded per day, the photo-sharing site claims to gain a new follower every second.
Online marketing is visual. If you are not telling your story to your supporters in a visual way, you may be ignored or left behind.
Facebook is even hiring a full time employee to head to Washington DC to get politicians and government officials on the Instagram bandwagon. (How can we get the same treatment for nonprofits? Eh, Facebook?)
