The survey of 160 charities also revealed that only 8% felt there was a high level of integration.
One respondent told the UTB: ‘Our social media strategy and fundraising strategy are entirely separate. We haven’t yet explored any ways to join them.’
The report also revealed that most small and medium-sized charities complained about time being a constraint. Some 72% of respondents said they only had occasional social media support, when someone had the time.
Three-quarters of the organisations polled had a presence on Facebook, while 71.3% were on Twitter, 35.6% were on YouTube and 34.4% were on LinkedIn.
The report, entitled ‘About That First Tweet’, includes a practical guide to social media for charities and social enterprises.
