More and more people use websites that could be classed as ‘social media.’
We want to engage with as many residents, community groups and partners as possible – we’re embracing social media sites like blogs, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn to get involved in local conversations.
All our staff have permission to use social media to improve the way they work – social media can empower residents who need to find out information about services but it can open a new world of contacts and knowledge to council staff and councillors too.
Our social media guidance for staff and councillors reminds them to be polite and use their common sense.
