As we can see from the chart above the most popular channel for nonprofits to promote their commercial social network communities was the charity’s own website at 78%, next with 62% emails to their e-subscribers and while 48% used face-to-face events. Online advertisements and search engine marketing (SEM) are less popular, used by just 12% and 6% of groups respectively.
