Monmouthshire County Council is pioneering the organisation-wide use of social media, and provides a useful round-up of the policies and social media accounts currently in place from a single page on their corporate website

Monmouthshire County Council wants to engage with as many residents, community groups and partners as possible Рthe council is embracing social media sites such as blogs, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn to get involved in local conversations.
All our staff have permission to use social media to improve the way they work – social media can empower residents who need to find out information about services but it can open a new world of contacts and knowledge to council staff and councillors too.
Here is a list of our most popular social media accounts for anyone who wants to keep up with what’s going on and join in with discussions about their area or interests.
