Social Media Club Philadelphia, PANMA, and Temple University Dept. of Journalism Presents: Social Media for Social Good

Social Media for Social Good

Social Media Club Philadelphia, PANMA, and Temple University Dept. of Journalism Presents: Social Media for Social Good from Mark Magliocco on Vimeo.


Social media offers organizations an indispensable tool set for a wide variety of philanthropic activities including activism, education, donor and volunteer development, and direct fundraising. Because of its inherently personal and community-based nature, social media provides an ideal canvas to work within, allowing causes to not just communicate, but also to activate and invigorate significant grassroots activity.
