  • Social Media in Fenland Andy Allsopp, Head of Communications Michele Ide-Smith, Web Strategy Manager January 2011
  • The Communications context
    • Audience
    • Money
    • Localism
  • A little bit of background…
  •  
  • Challenges in Wisbech
    • Socio-economic, rural deprivation
    • Large migrant worker population
    • Digital exclusion – IT skills and access
    • Hard-to-engage groups (migrant workers, youth, older people, disabled people, time pressured 25-40’s)
  • Engagement challenges
    • Poor attendance at Neighbourhood Panel meetings
    • Attendees not representative of the wider community
    • No way to record results of engagement activity and make them visible
  • How we did it
  • Strong partnership working
  • We asked the community what they wanted
  •  
  • And involved stakeholders in designing the solution

  • I reported the zebra crossing was disappearing. It was repainted. Result! Annie A. resident, Twitter @ shapeyourplace I'm quite impressed i got a responce :)) Fallen_Fen, Twitter Shape Your Place website starting to take shape - hope it continues to develop @ shapeyourplace Rob M., Twitter Thanks for those responses. I have noticed that the site seems much more secure lately and wish the project good luck for the future. John S resident, on website in response to a anti-social behaviour issue at a playground Many thanks again for your very clear reply. Owen S. resident, on website in response to an issue he had raised
  • A lesson we learnt…
  • Engage stakeholders who are active online!
  •  
  • From this…
  •  
  • Twitter.  Facebook.  Blogs.  Google Maps.  I’m struggling to see where the £80,000 price tag is justified within the scope of all those free social networking tools. I’m also a little concerned about how the input from these new forms of communication will be handled…I can only see it leading to eighty thousand pounds worth of public bitterness.
  • … to this!
  • … to this!
  •  
  • Next steps
  •  
  • Community ownership
  • Final points
    • Accessible, engaging, less authoritarian
    • Speak with one voice – no blame!
    • Quality engagement takes time and effort
    • Involve active bloggers and tweeters
    • Social media enables and supports…
    • …but ultimately it’s all about people
