  • 17. Step 1: Write a social media policy Wait. You DON’T HAVE a social media policy? Right now , someone in your agency is using social media. (Plus they’re on it ALL NIGHT LONG) e.g., by work computer, scheduled post, smartphone, hook or crook, etc.
  • 18. Someone in your agency is using social media Are they saying libelous things? racist things? misogynistic things? misinformed things? Are they complaining about your agency? your boss? you? Are you liable? Are those things even against the rules?
  • 19. Someone in your agency is using social media The easy answer? Assuming we don’t want to do that, where do we start?
  • 20.
    • Most importantly, don’t reinvent the wheel.
    • Lots of agencies have great social media policies
    • Lots of those agencies have lots more to worry about from social media than you do
    • Learn from all of them
  • 21.
    • Your social media policy should be specific to your situation AND address the following:
    • Responding to comments/feedback
    • Allowing comments/feedback
    • Voice: organizational vs. person on behalf of organization
    • Ethical conduct
    • Confidentiality
    • 24/7 usage
    • Identification as government employee
    • Work vs. personal use
    • Message clearance and approval
    Examples available!
  • 22. Step 2: Write your social media plan Your plan should be specific to your situation and should incorporate elements of your social media policy AND address the following:
    • Example, or “canned,” messages
    • Voice (organization vs. person)
    • Accepting/encouraging feedback
    • Personality (press release vs. human)
    • Content freshness
    • Goals/objectives
    • Which tools to use
    • METRICS!
    Example available!
  • 23. Mission Tools Metrics Teach Considerations: Monitoring Social media can spiral out of control if not monitored closely (see Domino’s Pizza and YouTube example). Here’s a couple examples of how to keep an eye on the shop:
    • Google Alerts
    • Twilerts
    • RSS feeds
    • Netvibes
    • Tweetgrid
    • Search for “brand or reputation monitoring”
  • 24. Mission Tools Metrics Teach Considerations: Voice
    • Voice Study :
    • Philadelphia Department of Public Health
    • Authoritative
    • Official
    • Difficult to inject personality
    • Be wary of “press release” speak
    • Jim Garrow
    • Full of personality
    • Easy to interact with
    • Speak for the Health Department?
  • 25. Mission Tools Metrics Teach Considerations: Voice
    • Voice Study :
    • Boston Public Health Commission
    • One-stop shop (fewer employees needed)
    • Greater follower potential
    • More difficult to get specific followers
    • Unfocused messaging
    • PDPHflu
    • Only for folks interested in flu
    • Goes dark after flu season
    • Can become the authority on a subject
  • 26. Mission Tools Metrics Teach Considerations: Personality
  • 27. Mission Tools Metrics Teach Considerations: Personality Ask yourself: Do I sound like someone I’d like to spend time with?
  • 28. Mission Tools Metrics Teach Considerations: Responding
  • 29. Mission Tools Metrics Teach Considerations: Tools! Finally! The secret weapon? … Go explore for yourself! Ask around! Me? I use mostly web-based tools (can’t install stuff at work), but it really depends. For example, on Twitter, I use four different clients, each in different situations. CoTweet, Seesmic, HelviTweet, Tweetgrid
  • 30. Mission Tools Metrics Teach Considerations: Metrics
    • Wouldn’t it be great to know how well our campaigns worked?
    • How many people read it?
    • How many people liked it?
    • How many people thought it good enough to show to their friends?
    • Heard what worked and what didn’t?
    • It’s impossible with traditional campaigns, especially given our limited resources (time, staff, funding, etc.).
  • 31. Mission Tools Metrics Teach Considerations: Metrics
    • In social media you can do all of that. Seek out and learn as much as you can about these tools:
    • Google Analytics
    • Klout (for Twitter)
    • Google Analytics (for Facebook)
    • Facebook Insights
    • YouTube Insights
    • Wordpress integrated stats (for blogging)
    • If it’s popular, someone will have stats on it.
    Example available!
  • 32. Mission Tools Metrics Teach Where can I learn more?! Two sets of experts: 1. Leaders Facebook search: “public health” GovTwit.com Govloop.com 2. Experts Remember I said someone in your agency is using social media right now? That’s your expert. Ask them.
  • 33. Mission Tools Metrics Teach One final thing to remember… Social media is but a tool. Too many feel that social media will replace traditional outreach. Social media is but ONE of the tools we should reach for. I’m sorry to tell you, but your job just got more difficult.
  • 34. Thank you.
