  • --On May 7, 2009, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report regarding the Air Force's involvement with the Global Positioning System (GPS), a system in which the Air Force has major operational and developmental responsibilities. The report suggested that GPS will begin to fail in 2010 and the AF didn’t meet its development goals.
    --Using social media, the Air Force held its first-ever Twitter.com news conference on May 20, 2009, dubbed an “Open Forum.” Col. Dave Buckman, the Air Force Space Command lead for Position, Navigation and Timing, responded to the inaccuracies in the GAO report during the hour-long conference. He addressed questions and comments from Twitter users around the globe.
    --The overall result was that the Air Force was able to quickly tell its side of the story and dispel rumors, and the ease of social media tools meant that the story reached a larger audience. While only 18 people participated during the “Open Forum” it’s interesting to note that a simple Google search for “air force twitter forum on GPS” results in 622 traditional stories from ABC News, Computerworld, Information Week, AP, AFP, PC Magazine, Telegrpah, Guardian, etc. The story is much larger online with approximately 8,700 bloggers writing about the event.
  • --In early June, LtCol Hughes, 407th Air Expeditionary Deputy Commander, decided he wanted to share a story with the rest of the Air Force and the public. He had to organize a last-minute hero flight, a flight home for a fallen Soldier, and described his feelings about the experience.
    --In the past, there was no outlet for leadership, or anybody, to tell this kind of story in the personal voice that LtCol Hughes used to tell this story. The Air Force blog provided that outlet and was a great example of leadership speaking from the bottom, as a regular Airman doing his job.
    --The story was also sent out via Twitter where it was re-tweeted numerous times, and was also posted to the official Army blog. People wrote in to express their gratitude both for the job the military does and for LtCol Hughes sharing the story.

  • Bring the public to events in real time – we can now, with little cost, bring our fans and followers to Uganda, the Horn of Africa, or a ship off the Panama Canal as events happen. Don’t discount the excitement this can create.
    Energized group of fans - Our stories, posts, photos, and videos are seen by more people who get them through a retweet or repost than from the original source.
    Create a venue for content normally culled – before social media, we routinely archived 7/8ths of the photos and video we received. Now, with Flickr and other sites we have a place to put additional content that was destined for the “cutting room floor.”
    Keep up on what’s being said about us – our Chief of Web and Social Media uses Tweetdeck and other free tools to keep a handle on the conversation – and his team responds based on a robust protocol. These conversations used to take place among close acquaintances over a beer – now take place online – and we can participate.
    I Just joined the army reserve – a quick Welcome to the Family goes a long way at setting the right tone with a new Soldier.
    We are an organization of 260,000 employees – most with families dispersed away from our Reserve Centers. In the past, questions went unasked for lots of reasons including not knowing who to ask them of. Now, Facebook and our other tools provide a central and “safe” place to ask a question of the community.

    187. 187. What Works – 10 plus one  Real speak – not corporate talk  First person – find a storyteller  Make the fan part of the story  Relevance trumps frequency  A great photo goes a long way  Raw, real, even messy video  Don’t edit real life (sh!t, d#mn, and bad grammar)  Monitor and acknowledge  Robust rules of engagement on all platforms  Segment if necessary; Coordinate always  If you are having fun, so will your fans 8 Sep 09 LTC Gerald Ostlund / ARC-PA / 703-601-0870 27
    188. 188. How it has helped us  Bring the public to our operations in real time  Energized group of fans who put legs on our stories  A venue for content normally culled from our traditional products  Ability to keep in tune to what’s being said about us on the net – and respond to it  When someone tweets ‘I just joined the Army Reserve” we can see it, and welcome them to the family  Aenue to Soldiers, Families, and prospects to ask questions that would normally not be heard  Energized a stale team of communications professionals – it’s dynamic and downright fun 8 Sep 09 LTC Gerald Ostlund / ARC-PA / 703-601-0870 28
    189. 189. If we can do it, so can you  Big organization, small budget (basically $0)  Big organization, small team (of one)  Lots of resistance  Network “protectors” dug in (and armed)  Dispersed public affairs community – who answer to their commander, not us  No expertise when we started (some would argue none now either, but that’s another discussion)  Anti-social corporate personality  Robust governance rules 8 Sep 09 LTC Gerald Ostlund / ARC-PA / 703-601-0870 29
