We use Facebook and Twitter. They seem to be working well. Our mayor has a greater following than the official city pages though. I administer the city page and we use it for public meeting calendar, event notifications, press releases, and such. Because we are a university town, social media is reaching a whole new group of constituents that we were not connecting with previously. It’s been successful so far and I’m working on a social media policy so that we can allow the various city departments and programs use these tools as well and provide them clear guidelines on use to prevent abuse or misuse.
