Social Media Subcouncil Public Wiki


This Wiki is managed by the Social Media Subcouncil, a group of government web managers at the federal, state, and local levels bringing together social media best practices and other resources for the benefit of government agencies.  It operates under the Federal Web Managers Council.


The Subcouncil uses this wiki to engage the community at large in discussion and to research various topics.  We define the community to include anyone, whether a government employee or not, who is interested in how government can take advantage of social media tools and concepts to advance agency missions.  Because anyone may contribute, information in this wiki does not represent any government agency or policy, nor does it necessarily represent a complete picture of any issue.


We'll post final documents and snapshots of ongoing research to the social media section of webcontent.gov.


To contribute, please request an account.  Everyone is welcome to participate with whatever user name you like, but we've found that barring anonymous participation results in a higher degree of discussion within the bounds of civil discourse.


Please let us know how we're doing or contact us with questions or suggestions beyond the scope of this wiki.
