Why 2012 Was A Very Good Year For Social Giving [INFOGRAPHIC]

Did you know that 74 percent of non-profits use Twitter, which is behind only Facebook (a heady 98 percent) amongst social networks, but ahead of YouTube (66 percent), LinkedIn (48 percent) and Google+ (26 percent)?

This infographic takes a closer look at why 2012 was a very good year for social giving.
