Local Government and Social Media

Social media iconsA recent ICMA survey reports that 84% of local governments have a social media presence.

“The high use of social media by the public in general provides local governments with expanded communication opportunities.”

ICMA also reports that this increase will influence the organization’s development of digital media. An ICMA app may be in the works!

You can download the complete survey results here.
