Here’s a re-post from Show Hope’s blog on how YOU can make a difference in the lives of orphans through social media!
Have you ever wondered how you can join Show Hope in the movement to care for orphans? Just take a look online! Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest are all great ways to spread awareness and inspire your friends to care for orphans!
Sometimes, all the possibilities for using social media can seem a bit overwhelming. When do you post, what do you post, and how do you get people to actually look at it? Here are five easy and effective ways to use your social media to partner with Show Hope:
1. Do Your Research
Before you post anything on social media, know the facts to back it up. A great place to start when looking for facts and resources is right here on the Show Hope blog! You can download our guide to understanding the orphan crisis, discover creative ways to get involved, and even find Bible verses about orphans and adoption!
2. Add a Picture
The old saying is true: pictures really are worth a thousand words. That is especially true in the world of social media! Instagram is one of the top five most popular smartphone apps. Posts on Twitter that include an image are much more likely to be shared than if they are just text. In your mission to spread awareness for adoption and orphan care on social media, images are a great way to catch people’s eyes. Consider sharing a photo from one of Show Hope’s social media pages! You can visit us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.
