I'm a final year communication studies student in DCU. I am currently researching for my undergraduate thesis 'The use of social media for public relations by the Irish voluntary sector.' I was wondering if you would be able to assist me with a query?
I am looking into how Non-profit organisations are using social media and why. In order to carry out my work I must define the categories of organisations within the voluntary sector and will be conducting my study on a number of Non-Profits within each category for comparative purposes. In my research I have come across a number of different category descriptions. I was wondering if you could assist me in identifying the different types of Non-Profits within the Irish voluntary sector. In some of the literature I have read I saw it categorised according to objective; Aid, Advocacy, Research. Would this classification be comprehensive enough?
Any direction you can give me would be much appreciated,
Hoping to hear from you soon,
All the best,
