Two government superstars teamed up to author a step-by-step book for public agencies on how to effectively use social media. This "field guide" is the work of Ines Mergel, assistant professor of public administration at Syracuse University, and Bill Greeves, CIO of Wake County, N.C. (who recently topped the list of "most social government CIOs" by Public CIO magazine).
This video takes a quick look at Social Media in the Public Sector Field Guide: Designing and Implementing Strategies and Policies and why it's the perfect stocking stuffer for any public sector employee. The book was published this November and can be found through major book retailers.
