Science. Technology. Defense. Healthcare. Research. An inter-planetary robot sending tweets from Mars. For many, 2012 was the year government participation in social media became standard.
In 2013, however, you’ll see ground-breaking applications of:
- APIs and new communication models between citizens and government
- social data for start-ups, entrepreneurs and small businesses
- predictive analysis, such as CDC’s use of social media to analyze emerging flu outbreaks
- customer service, like Federal Student Aid’s #AskFAFSA open office hours
- performance measurement, including sentiment analysis and mission impact
- and technological innovation that will be anything but standard
2013 is the year of social government as these responsive digital capabilities spread out from communications offices and into programs from the ground-level to the highest ranks – and in the process improve citizen services and cost savings.
Join us as federal agencies from diverse mission areas across government share their vision for the coming year, and what social government programs you can help shape as citizens, tech start-ups and organizations.
Presenters from the Federal Social Media Community of Practice will include:
- GSA’s Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies
- National Archives and Records Administration
- Office of the Director of National Intelligence
- Department of Defense
- National Institutes of Health
- U.S. Geological Survey
On the #SocialGov Community: The Social Media Community of Practice (CoP) launched in June 2012 to unite more than 300 Federal social media managers in a community dedicated to identifying and solving shared challenges. The group works with agencies across government, the Federal Web Managers Council, the White House, and with others outside of government to promote the effective and responsible use of social data for improving citizen services and cutting costs.
