Your social media and outreach networks are great channels to communicate with your peers, partners, communities, and families. Sharing information and encouraging involvement can increase recruitment of families, engage and prepare older youth, and help provide new resources and perspective for those working with you to help establish forever families and permanent connections. Use these sample messages for Facebook and Twitter during National Adoption Month.
- Repeat posts multiple times to reach a wider audience
- Schedule the majority of your posts in the afternoon
- Use quotes, links, and images to attract greater attention
