Facebook groups

Organizations, activist groups, interest groups, think tanks

Note: For marketing purposes, the best approach to these groups is probably on a debate-to-debate basis, where research is done for a topic, the key positions of these organizations are uncovered AND recorded on the debate page, and then that particular debate or range of debates is brought directly to their attention with a short note/letter and a link to the debate inviting them to participate.
