Social Governance

22 06 2010

A nice blog article by Dave Briggs in which he looks at how governmental departments have moved on from talking about social media to actually using it. We’ve still got much to achieve in this area though, as Dave and his contributors are only too aware. The nightmare of red tape, getting clearance and the worry over negative press coverage makes the vast majority of communication to stakeholders (i.e. the general public) so bland and uninteresting that it misses the point of social media entirely – it doesn’t engage.

Still it’s a start, and anything that gets the public even slightly more communicative with the powers that be (and vice-versa) has to be a good thing.
