Here are a couple of useful links to stories that will help you navigate the social media world. Both social media neophytes and seasoned veterans will find this information helpful.
Next, a friend e-mailed me this morning saying he came across A Politician’s Guide to Social Media, and thought it was another good reminder to those in public office on how to conduct themselves in the social media world. There is a short little video that you can watch from GovGirl which gives the following advice:
- Don’t post anything you wouldn’t want to see in tomorrow’s paper.
- Know your agency’s social media policy.
- Talk like a real person.
- Abide by campaign and open meeting laws.
- Never cross the streams!
The best thing about the Internet and social networking sites can also be the worst thing. Too much information and it becomes a daunting task to figure out where to start. I hope these links and sites give you some insight on navigating and enjoying the power of social media. As always, feel fee to contact me or comment on this blog for additional discussion.
