Public Diplomacy in the Age of Social Media

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.
