Social Networking and State Agencies
Does your agency have a social networking presence? Are you using Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, or any other social networking tools to help communicate with your constituents? Keeping on top of new and innovative web technologies that you are using helps us to better preserve your web presences, and develop more targeted advisory tools to help you. Please contact Sarah Durling at firstname.lastname@example.org or 518-473-6803 to let us know what new and interesting things your agency is doing!
