Social Media Project Home


Draft goal: To collaborate with other organizations and groups to provide and outline the best practices for using such services to advance the mission of government agencies and engage the public. The best will also highlight how security risks can be mitigated and records management requirements can be met.


The Project Group will identify:

  1. Best practices for government use of social media (no more than 10).
  2. Government entities that have successfully implemented social media usage as potential use cases.
  3. Any issues that significantly hinder social media adoption by government.


Teleconference meetings will be held on Fridays at 3 p.m. US eastern time (20:00 UTC). The project will meeting as necessary or upon request of the Chairs. Initial meetings maybe once a week or every other week.
