Social media is a hot topic.
This much is apparent based on the questions analysts receive during state and local government consulting. Answering these types of questions are always challenging because social media is a relatively new invention that continues to grow in use and impact. It’s an even newer service for governments who, with increased frequency, are turning to social media in order to connect to the public.
A plethora of information exists on the topic and it’s hard to know (a) what applies to state and local governments, (b) what is true and not true, and (c) where to even start!
To properly inform governments on everything they should know about using social media for their government body and managing potential records would result in a massive, potentially overwhelming post.
Because we don’t want to inundate our blog subscribers with a mega-post about the ins and outs of social media and records management, we’re going to embark on a social media series of blog posts where we will completely cover social media from top to bottom, including:
- Social Media Benefits and Challenges
- Social Media Records and Retention
- Social Media Capture Methods
- Social Media Policies and Procedures
