Guide to using Social Media – for Councillors

The IDEA (Improvement and Development Agency has recently published a draft social media guide for councillors. Recommended reading for all local councillors.

The Cabinet Office recently released “Participation online Guidance for civil servants” . It is only one page long. In fact the guidance has been boiled down to 5 main points and a paragraph on how it relates to the Civil Service Code.

In summary,

1. Be credible
2. Be consistent
3. Be responsive
4. Be integrated

5. Be a civil servant

The Power of Information Taskforce  is looking for feedback.
