February 14, 2011 2 Comments
As part of the regional sessions we spent a lot of time discussing with councillors why they should bother with all this social media stuff. The barriers ranged from not enough time to reputational and standards risk, from techno fear to generating even more work for a busy councillor. Quite often there seemed to be more reasons to avoid social media than positively pursue it.
Well, for all you councillors considering taking the plunge, have a look at the Top Ten Reasons for Cllrs to Use Social Media produced by those lovely folk at Local Government Leadership. Their 21st Century Councillors site is a brilliant space for councillors (and officers who support them) whatever point they are on on their socmed journey.
