CharityBlog and social media

CharityBlog’s quick round-ups (Storifies) of social media (tweets etc) of general interest for a charity audience now take place on VoluntaryNews. These are created from regular trawling of networks, charity news and other web links in compiling sector news.

At January 2016, the web address charityblog.org.uk (and also charityblog.co.uk) is available for purchase by an appropriate organisation.

CharityBlog is part of VolResource. Follow updates via Twitter. If you wish to contact us, please do so via VolResource form (or VoluntaryNews).

What this site was doing
