Podcast: Making the Most of Location-Based Networks

Danielle Brigida, social media coordinator for the National Wildlife Federation

Foursquare and other location-based social networks offer new opportunities for nonprofit groups.

But many people in the nonprofit world are still unsure how to make the most of these networks.

Allison Fine, the host of Social Good, talks with Danielle Brigida of the National Wildlife Federation to learn about Ms. Brigida's experiments with the geographically-based networks and examine ideas for how charities can make use of these emerging tools.

Allison Fine, a nonprofit leader and expert on technology and communications, discusses how charities and foundations can more effectively use social-media tools to spread their messages and raise money. Ms. Fine will incorporate suggestions and questions from readers into her podcasts and invites you to send e-mail messages to her at Look for new installments on the first Thursday of every month.
