Tomorrow (that’s Monday, 4th October) I’ll be at The Guardian‘s Public Sector Online conference, which looks like it should be a great day.
I’m on at 15:30, for the closing panel titled “Innovation in social media”. Here’s the skinny:
As more people use social networking sites to keep informed, and organisations use them to spread information and market services, what are the best ways for public sector bodies to engage with the public?
- The rise in the use of social networks as a line of communication
- Twittiquette – best use of Tweets
- Twitter as a public service: e.g. Gritterfeeds
- Generating and monitoring content – Social media etiquette
- Online engagement – encouraging two way usage
Joining me on the panel will be:
- Andy Gibson, co-founder, School of Everything and author, Local by Social
- Sarah Drummond, founder, mypolice.org
- Lauren Currie, director, mypolice.org
- Gordon Scobbie, assistant chief constable, West Midlands Police
Which means that, even if nobody else has any fun, at least I’ll get to hang out with some cool people for an hour or so!
If you are attending, do get in touch and let’s meet up! Twitter will probably be the easiest way.
