Dear Liberation Tech Colleagues,
Tech Networks of Boston (TNB) and TNB Labs (TNBL) are pleased to invite you
to a Roundtable session on how nonprofits can use Facebook to broadcast
their impact and engage supporters. Our featured guest will be John Haydon,
the author of “Facebook Marketing for Dummies.”
Here is what John says about this session:

while publishing an update from your mobile device), many nonprofits are

How should we respond to commenters?
How long should we broadcast?
Will anybody actually tune-in?
What should we do with the recording?
