Social Media: Where's Everyone Going?
Friday, April 13, 2012
Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are too hot for legislatures, legislators and legislative staff to ignore. We discussed the most popular social media sites for getting government information. We also looked at some of the newer social media sites and programs like Google+ and Pinterest, and explored how they could be used as communication tools by state legislatures and legislators. Know the options as you decide how to best communicate with your constituents, the general public and your colleagues.
