Governments and social media have reached a tentative partnership. While the Internet is no longer a "Wild West," people in power are still trying to figure out how best to approach online communities and their social tools.
We’ve chosen a few examples to illustrate some of the many ways government is embracing social media. Have a read through some of these initiatives and let us know in the comments how your own government or political representative is putting social media to good use. The list is neither exhaustive nor does it try to summarize the entirety of a government’s social outreach. It is instead meant to start a conversation.
