Many local governments in North Carolina are beginning to use online tools such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to communicate with citizens. What are important considerations for initiating or building a social media component for citizen communication and input? How might government work with local media, nonprofit groups and others to support an online version of "the public square"?

This webinar provides many examples from large and small NC jurisdictions using social media. We explore the why, and "how tos" for content management and free speech, staff training and responsibilities, and developing appropriate policies to guide social media use. Material includes results of a survey of over 100 NC local government jurisdictions, practical tips and state and local resources on how social media relates to open and transparent government movements.
