    • GovDocs 2.0: How Government and Documents Libraries are using Social Media
    • How is social media changing government agencies?

    • Government agencies have adopted this mindset to varying degrees as a way to foster trust and dialogue with people.
      At the most basic level, social media is about community building.

    • In 2008, Admiral Thad Allen of the U.S. Coast Guard sent out a service-wide message saying, “[To] modernize the Coast Guard we must learn how to effectively use social media tools to enhance our ability to perform as a more transparent, change-centric organization.”
    • At the Bellevue Police Department in Nebraska, Twitter is used to solicit help from the public and Facebook is used as a comment and complaint board for residents.
    • Funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the U.S. Geological Survey’s Twitter Earthquake Detector (@USGSTed) is a prototype that gathers real-time Twitter updates during seismic activities faster than scientific equipment can be tapped for more precise measurements and alerts.
    • Could Twitter Provide Early Warnings For Epidemics?
      Based on their findings, they believe that Twitter could be a valuable tool to help individuals find nearby emergency medical personnel. By monitoring Twitter trends, they believe health officials can better detect and respond to an epidemic.
    • Useful resources!
    • Thank you!
