USA, Department of State; Social Media structure, strategies, achievements, stats, stories and future plans.
In a 90 Min talk with senior “Social Media Diplomats” who lead the social media team.
Public Diplomacy in the Age of Social Media
How does social media change how statecraft is practiced in the 21st century? Who’s participating and why? What have been some lessons learned from the pioneers who have logged on to listen and engage? During this event, three representatives from the U.S. Department of State shared case studies and professional experiences gleaned directly from the virtual trenches. Alexander Howard, Government 2.0 Washington Correspondent for O’Reilly Media, moderated.
