Infographic: How Did Social Media Impact Charitable Giving In 2012?

The folks at MDG Advertising created this visually impressive and easy-to-read infographic detailing social media’s influence on charitable giving this past year.

In the introduction to the infographic, they wrote: “Raising money for good causes has more than doubled in the last 5 years. With the ever-increasing usage of social media and the viral nature of online events, such as #GivingTuesday, social giving is becoming very popular and effective among nonprofits.”
