There is a fast growing perception that your nonprofit’s CEO and C-suite leaders will be active on social media. The media expects it. Constituents will look for them there. Donors will want to know what you have to say and why they should give.
This trend is not specific to certain age groups as more and more constituents are connected regardless of age group (see article here).
