Social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube have become commonplace tools for government outreach. However, agencies are moving away from social media as an outbound communication tool and enlisting social media to help do many jobs better. Agencies leverage social media to reach underserved audiences during key initiatives who otherwise would not have paid attention to the referendum, get accurate information out more quickly during emergencies such as Hurricane Sandy and capitalize on citizens as real-time sensors through crowdsourcing to solve government problems and improve services. Taking it a step further, agencies are reimaging the delivery of services by using tools to collect, track, manage and analyze the success of their digital engagement with stakeholders.

Join AFCEA Bethesda on February 11 at the Bethesda North Marriott and Conference Center for “Social Media and Reimagining the Delivery of Services” an executive breakfast to discuss how agencies use social media in ways that move us toward being more effective at receiving information, analyzing social media data sources and better understanding the needs of constituents.
Panelists will discuss:
  • Unique acquisition challenges associated with social media technology solutions
  • How social media programs are funded within various agencies and organizations
  • Challenges for major federal social media programs, that pull or share information from various sources to help make informed, accurate decisions
  • How social media tools and solutions are funded and acquired
  • What deems a social media post or communication a federal record
  • What tools are used to store or archive a federal record
  • How to use social media to engage internal and partner stakeholders such state and local government agencies
