Facebook Causes: using social media for change

UN High-Level Meeting on Youth

There is no question that social media is playing a role in helping non-profits change the world.

Matthew Mahan and his team took this idea and turned it into an app called Facebook Causes.

So far it has raised $40 million from users for various charities around the world.

He recently attended a UN event sponsored by the International Labour Organisation and the UN Programme on Youth (UNPY) to promote partnerships between young people and the private sector.

Julie Walker spoke with Mahan at the event.
