CharityBlog and social media

CharityBlog is currently giving quick round-ups of social media (tweets etc) of general interest for a charity audience, mainly using Storify. These are created from regular trawling of networks, charity news and other web links in compiling VoluntaryNews. Roughly daily publishing – stories may get further updates during the day. We welcome your comments and suggestions.

CharityBlog is part of VolResource. Follow both CharityBlog and VolResource updates via Twitter.

What this site was doing

CharityBlog was originally for more general material (less newsy than VoluntaryNews), posing questions or expressing an opinion, on issues about or for the voluntary sector (which includes charities and community groups) in Britain or Ireland.
