Actually, many government agencies are. This week I’ll share what I know about government agencies using social media such as Youtube, Facebook and Twitter as I finish preparations for the upcoming GovTech Minnesota Digital Government Summit.
As I’m preparing, however, you might be able to help. If you’re in government and you don’t think you’re using social media as much as you might……why? What are the main hurdles standing in your way?
Hurdles I’ve heard include:
- We don’t have staff who we can dedicate to it.
- It’s too expensive to develop.
- It’s a security risk.
- We don’t want our agency to get into social media (because we don’t know alot about it, can’t control it, etc.)
- Our Internet use policies won’t allow us.
Drop me a line or add a comment if you have additional ones or if you think one of the above is particularly significant.
