Welcome to the Connected Church News by Natchi Lazarus.

This news item is part of the top 5 news (Week 3, Mar 2024) specially curated for leaders of Nonprofits, Churches, and Faith-based Social Ventures. 

Next time someone googles your organization name, they will not only see your social media profiles, but they may also see your social media posts. The latest post that you have might appear right there as a carousel. This significant information was quietly added to the FAQ section of Google businesses help article. The FAQ is, “Why does my social media post show on my business profile?” And the answer says “Business profiles with an associated Social media link may find their social media posts surfaced on their business profile automatically”!! As of now doesn’t look like you can decide which post show up. Google is going to pull it up for you. And this is probably a feature that’s being rolled out. So if you don’t see it when you search for your organization name, just wait for it. And all of this is part of Google Business listing. So if you as a nonprofit, church or ministry have not taken a deeper look at how your organization is listed then this is a good time for you to review all that information.
