How to Do Grounded Online Campaigning

In this webinar we mainly focused on the channels Twitter, Facebook and Telegram as well as the online tool Canva. How can we use these as a (small) NGO or grassroots organisation in a purposeful and effective way, which contents make sense and how can they be presented to reach more people and create engagement? What is the Facebook Creator Studio, how can we create engagement on Twitter and what are the benefits of lists and groups there? How can Telegram be used to reach your followers regularly and directly?
We mainly dealt with the technical level of the platforms. Additionally we explored how graphics can be created and edited quickly using Canva and how a small social media team can coordinate itself.
