People call me The Community Guy
Non-profits need to play by the rules too
Last week one of my connections sent me a video that the American Cancer Society made to support their new site, SocietyConnect.org. You can check it out below. But if you’re a fan of the Common Craft videos, especially the Social Networking in Plain English video, you’ll notice some significant similarities. Namely, the script. Despite […]
