If you work in local government, you've almost certainly heard stories of public officials getting themselves into hot water through irresponsible use of social media. While these situations can often be avoided by using common sense, it's crucial for municipalities to have clear, detailed social media policies in place to both protect the government and its employees from legal liability as well as to maintain the public's trust.

In this webinar, participants will learn the tools and strategies needed to make sure their local government's social media policies are up to snuff.

During this session, you will discuss:

  • The essential elements of an effective social media policy
  • How to avoid the common pitfalls your government may encounter on social media
  • Possibilities of social media use beyond information sharing
  • How to have productive conversations with your elected officials about social media use


  • Dr. Sarah Stoeckel, councilwoman, Titusville, FL
  • Thomas Bryer, professor of public administration, University of Central Florida
