Empire Avenue Missions extending reach for Social Causes

A post by G. Gazin, aka @gadgetgreg on @troymedia

Social media ‘missions’ extend reach for social causes

… And that is where Empire Avenue, a social media platform, came in… … They found that missions could increase transactions, tweets, re-tweets, likes, and comments etc., across social platforms which in turn could help them achieve better ranking in keyword and search results and across other platforms.

DES Activist outside USA

Honoured to publish a guest post from Carol Devine, DES daughter, Founder and Coordinator of the Sydney based group, DES Action Australia-NSW, which formed in 1995.
