Developing Community Connections in a Virtual World – a social media ‘how-to’ for public officials
As social networking continues to gain popularity and businesses refine the medium as a marketing and public outreach tool, public agencies and public officials are also learning how to harness this resource to transcend the traditional tools of community planning and decision-making.
The ULI Rose Center for Public Leadership is pleased to provide a two-part series about how social media is giving public entities the gift of being able to converse directly with their audiences and how to use these communication streams for strategic community outreach and citizen engagement.
