New web resource provides digital hub for councils!

The Local Government Association and Comms2point0 have launched 'Digital Councils', a hub for local government on all things social media.

The resource can be found here: http://www.local.gov.uk/digital-councils and includes guidance on all elements of social media from getting to grips with Twitter and other social networks to building a digital strategy, providing a way for the LGA to work with a range of councils and councillors who can be moving at different speeds. It includes a mythbuster section as well as hints and tips pages specially designed to reflect the range of different roles in a council, such as officers and councillors.

Digital Councils will be continuously updated to reflect current work and will carry a range of case studies so authorities can learn from good practice elsewhere.

Cllr David Sparks, Chairman of the Local Government Association, said:

"Many councils have already got to grips with social media and are using it to communicate with their residents about things like bin collections, weather warnings and road closures.
