    • What is Social Media
      • Defining the Terms
      • Relating Social Media to Government
    • Social Media in the Agency
    • Planning Social Media Efforts
      • Audience Centered Planning
    • Providing the information of “greatest use”
  • How can we apply the fundamentals of social media to your goals within the government?
  • The Relevant History
    • “ A popular government without popular information or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a farce or a tragedy; or perhaps both.
    • Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power that knowledge gives .”
    • James Madison
    = Government should listen. = People need accessible information.
  • The memo.
    • Transparency , Participation , and Collaboration .
    • “ Administrator of General Services, to coordinate the development by appropriate executive departments and agencies, within 120 days, of recommendations for an Open Government Directive, to be issued by the Director of OMB, that instructs executive departments and agencies to take specific actions implementing the principles set forth in this memorandum.”
    • Government should be transparent. Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their Government is doing. Information maintained by the Federal Government is a national asset. My Administration will take appropriate action, consistent with law and policy, to disclose information rapidly in forms that the public can readily find and use. Executive departments and agencies should harness new technologies to put information about their operations and decisions online and readily available to the public. Executive departments and agencies should also solicit public feedback to identify information of greatest use to the public.
    • Government should be participatory . Public engagement enhances the Government’s effectiveness and improves the quality of its decisions. Knowledge is widely dispersed in society, and public officials benefit from having access to that dispersed knowledge. Executive departments and agencies should offer Americans increased opportunities to participate in policymaking and to provide their Government with the benefits of their collective expertise and information. Executive departments and agencies should also solicit public input on how we can increase and improve opportunities for public participation in Government.
    • Government should be collaborative. Collaboration actively engages Americans in the work of their Government. Executive departments and agencies should use innovative tools, methods, and systems to cooperate among themselves, across all levels of Government, and with nonprofit organizations, businesses, and individuals in the private sector. Executive departments and agencies should solicit public feedback to assess and improve their level of collaboration and to identify new opportunities for cooperation.
    • I direct the Chief Technology Officer, in coordination with the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the
    • Administrator of General Services, to coordinate the development by appropriate executive departments and agencies, within 120 days, of recommendations for an Open Government Directive, to be issued by the Director of OMB, that instructs executive departments and agencies to take specific actions implementing the principles set forth in this memorandum. The independent agencies should comply with the Open Government Directive.
