Welcome to our new site. We hope it will provide you with all you need to get more involved in social media.
If you are just thinking about getting online, with a blog or social network account and not sure about how to do it, then why not take a look at our guide to social media for local politicians.
Perhaps you are still not quite convinced that social media is right for you? Well be sure to check out our case studies showcasing how councillors – including some who weren’t convinced themselves until recently – have embraced the social web as a means to not only share their messges and manifestos, but also to listen to residents and engage with them more effectively.
This site also features the social media guide in full, broken down into sections. If you go to the guide you will see that you can comment on a section as a whole and on a particular paragraph if your point or question is more specific.
We really want to know how you feel about social media and are keen to get some excellent discussion in the comments, so dont be shy as we are all still learning when it comes to social media – no question is too basic and hopefully someone out there will be able to answer it for you.
If you want to print the guide in its entirety then you can download the PDF here.
We hope you find the site useful and if there’s anyway we can change it for the better be sure to leave a comment to let us know.
