Last week Natalie Wright from the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma came to our class and told us how they are using social media in their non-profit organization.

While the jury is still out on whether or not RFOB can’t live with it or can’t live with out it, they are doing a great job using it. RFOB, with much help from Natalie Wright, has created a twitter account, facebook account, Myspace account, Flickr account and maybe even a couple other sources that I have forgotten.  

I think it is really wise of RFOB to get its name out in the surrounding community using these tools for tons of reasons, my main one being it can reach a huge audience by still targeting their audiences specific needs. I think the facebook presence is a great way for RFOB to reach those people who are already committed to its cause, and for it to recruit young and willing volunteers. I think the twitter presences is a smart way for the “business and media community”, if you will, to know what is going with RFOB.

I think this organization should definitely be commended for its efforts and props to Natalie for getting RFOB up and running in the social media world.
