Should your organization use new technologies?

Organizations should look into using new technologies like blogs, rss feeds, tagging, and podcasts in their organization. All of these new tools have the potential to be useful in the nonprofit sector. However, it varies from organization to organization.

You should not use a new technology (or any technology) just to use it. You need to set goals. What do you want to accomplish by using this new technology? How will it help your organization?

Create a plan on implementing the technology.

For example, you want to start a blog for your organization. Who will be updating the blog? Who do you hope will be reading the blog? What content will you include? How often will you be posting new entries?

Evaulate the technology as time goes on. Is it successful? What works? What does not work? How can you make improvements?
