How can you use Social Media tools like Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, and Instagram to promote community projects? In this workshop, we'll review best practices for making social media posts and optimizing them to reach your desired audiences. We'll review creative approaches to writing posts, sharing photos, and making videos. And we'll look at ad buying on Facebook and Twitter, where small tactical spends can help you get your post in front of people interested in your topics.
