PFRA joins Twitter

first_imgThe Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (PFRA) has begun communicating via Twitter. It aims to use the tool primarily to communicate its core business to members, such as meeting dates, impending diary deadlines and to disseminate information about face-to-face fundraising, such as sign up figures and DARS attrition results.The self-regulatory body will also use it to attempt to engage with people who want to know more about how face-to-face is regulated, especially those who have alleged bad practice and might want to make a complaint. It does not however intend to engage simply with people who don’t like ‘chuggers’.PFRA’s head of communications Ian MacQuillin said: “I’ve been monitoring chatter about F2F on social media platforms and there is a lot less than you’d think. Much of what there is misperception about what F2F entails – such as whether street fundraisers get commission.“I don’t think Twitter is the right platform to start debating the rights and wrongs of face-to-face, especially with someone who might have Tweeted just to get something off their chest.”www.twitter.com/thePFRA AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 30 March 2011 | News Tagged with: Digital Law / policy PFRA Twitter Advertisement PFRA joins Twitter About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
