ZOHO is a must have for nonprofits period. We're not sure if this is what ZOHO stands for but we'd like to call it "Zen Office, Home Office" :) Thanks to Jacqueline Lawson for the video comparison to Google docs! is the more tech savvy version of FriendFeed and Twitter. What we mean by that is, FreedFeed may aggregate more social media sites, Twitter may have the most twits but at, the innovators - the people that work hard to make/develop the Internet and its applications - are there! ;)

Drupal Gardens

Drupal Gardens is a cool Acquia Drupal site that makes launching a basic site for your needs as not only a nonprofit but as a business a well. Look for this customizeable, Drupal, point-and-click type interface to improve and make it a lot easier to launch a Drupal site.


There is potential and much more than we think. Although nonprofits and NGOs have not found as many ways to use Foursquare as much as individuals, we need to be creative and think about what Foursquare really provides our community. For one, it's fun. You get trophies, awards, a title... All for exploring the world. With "check-ins" and "nights out", you can do a lot more with Foursquare than you think ;)


As the social media evolution continues to evolve, there are hundreds of aggregators or application tools to collate your information online. Whether it is Tweets, FB statuses, LinkedIn updates or MySpace, TweetDeck makes organizing all the shouts (as Internet users used to call them in the early 90s) a lot easier.

Google Buzz

UPDATE: Google Buzz has ended because of Google+. We'll write another review soon on how best to use G+ like Facebook.


So what's all this buzz about? Google Buzz.

Open Atrium

Open Atrium is in a league of its own ;) This open source software creates an Intranet that will take your nonprofit to the next level. iGetcha loves what these people are doing and we wish more techies would contribute to the social benefit world in these ways...


LinkedIn is a popular networking site for businesses. In iGetcha's opinion, you might not be able to do much with Linkedin as a nonprofit but you can find people that are working towards similar goals. Our suggestion is, try contacting others at nonprofits that are aligned with your mission and programs and maybe, you'll be able to collaborate and support each other ;)



So what can we say about Facebook now? We don't want to be negative but with the closing of Facebook lite and all the privacy issues that have arisen lately, we're not sure if nonprofits and NGOs should use this site as much as before.


The iGetcha team did not have much exposure to Wordpress but we did utilize the Drupal module inspired by Ankesh Kothari's Buy Me a Beer Wordpress plugin :)
