There have been lots of Salesforce Spring ’14 Release Notes posts out there in blog land, but I wanted to give my perspective on what I thought were the features which would have the most impact for nonprofit organizations. Of course, at 330 pages, I am bound to miss one of your favorite features, but these are the ones which jumped out at me during my review. Some are big, some are small, but I think all are great improvements to the platform. For a full review of what’s coming in the Spring ’14 release, be sure to check out the live event on February 12th, hosted by Salesforce.com.

While perusing the Social Media for Nonprofits LinkedIn Group, I came across a discussion on what the best webinar platform is and why. Over the past year we’ve hosted and participated in many webinars and figured we’d share some of our knowledge from experience.
While we were looking at the hosting options we’ve used for our webinars, and exploring ones that we hadn’t, it became clear that the service selected plays a small role in the success of a webinar, but there are many other factors that will determine success. Below are some tips that we’ve implemented to increase the success of our webinars over the past year.Read More
Hard to believe that #GivingTuesday just had their second annual event this year. Philanthropy.com is reporting that there were over 10,000 nonprofits who participated this year, while 2012 saw only 2,500 participating organizations. There were so many tweets on Tuesday, you’d have thought this has been going on for years! I was curious to see how much they grew through their social efforts from 2012 to 2013, and using Topsy.com I was able to find out.Read More
Last week was a blast following along with the #DF13 hashtag. On Monday we compared what services people were using to share their images via Twitter (the results may surprise you), on Tuesday Marc Benioff was incredible quotable throughout his keynote presentation, Wednesday brought us Sheryl Sandberg who told us to stop calling little girls bossy and Thursday was all about the hackathon and the million dollar prize.Read More
Thursday was much quieter day at #DF13 than I was expecting, with the expo halls closing early and sessions ending in the afternoon, but there were still 15,004 tweets!
The top 4 most mentioned Twitter names should come as no surprise, but @SherylSandberg rounding out the top 5 was a bit interesting. Looks like the women attending #DF13 enjoyed the #LeanIn circles on Thursday morning and people continued to retweet quotes from her fireside chat from Wednesday, mentioning her on Twitter 241 times.
Over 1,500 tweets on day 4 of Dreamforce contained @Dreamforce‘s Twitter name and @Salesforce was mentioned 1,076 times as well. Marc @Benioff‘s account was tweeted 584 times, but we are pretty sure most of those were just talking about his awesome shoes! @DeepakChopra‘s afternoon keynote session was wildly popular, with 446 mentions and many people saying they weren’t able to get a seat in his conference room.Read More
