Guidelines from NZ Stages of Involvement in SM o Passive – Listening • Social Mention – http://www.socialmention.com o Active – Participate in blogs, forums, wikis o Engaged – Establish a SM site, Twitter account Code of Conduct and online participation o http://ssc.govt.nz/code “One of the most serious drawbacks for Chief Executives is the amount of time SM takes up and the risk that if they are not familiar with SM, they might come across too formal and therefore “inauthentic”. Consideration should be given to resourcing or delegating to a SM expert within the organization.” Nov 7th 2012 User Forum - Prepared by IES

Social Media in Action Careers Outreach – Careers NZ “We go to where our target audience is and talk to them there and help people who are asking questions or wanting advice on their careers. It’s a great way to provide links back to our information. We’ve confirmed much of conventional wisdom – a voice that is not authentic draws no responses from the crowd. But if you are genuine and truly helpful, people respond well.” Public Health campaign in support of breast feeding moms – Ministry of Health Facebook community of 6,000 in support of normalizing breast feeding to 6 months and beyond in public spaces Nov 7th 2012 User Forum - Prepared by IES
Social Media in Action Crowdsourcing Images – NZ Historic Places Trust Using Flickr to crowdsource images for the Registrar of Historic Places. Our goal is to raise awareness, inspire conversation, and engage the public around historic buildings. We post requests for images on Flickr and people respond. We contact them and they become part of our community (99 members). Blogging Business Advice – Ministry of Economic Dev The sheer number of different departments was confusing to citizens. The blog allowed us to bring all of these units together in one place creating a consolidated brand.
