Not everyone loves social media. Many not-for-profit (NFP) organisations don’t.

Recent research shows that 25 percent of Australia NFPs doesn’t use social media, while only 5 percent replaced their existing methods of marketing and fundraising with social media.

So, why isn’t social media loved by everyone?

Is it because there are too many old greasy people who doesn’t like new technology?

Or is it because younger people nowadays are just not interested in volunteering work?

But come on, guys! We are no longer in the older days where Internet, computers and new media are a form of privilege.

Today, anyone can access the Internet anywhere at anytime.

Being old is not an excuse. I believe that you are never too late to learn something new.

There are currently thousands of free social media out there in the World Wide Web, easily accessible and easy to create one.

All you will need is an e-mail address (duh), and a willingness to learn how to navigate something new.

So what do you guys think?

Should NFPs start to rise up to the new technologies, or should they continue to stay with the stone age?

I would love to hear what you guys gotta say on this topic, so cast your opinion on the poll below (or better yet, leave a comment)!
