Guide to Facebook pages for government organisations


Click for larger version (ideal for cut+paste into presentations!)

Learning Pool have produced a useful guide to Facebook for government with strategy, advice and case studies. This is useful to people starting out trying to understand how Facebook can work for them.

To try and relay some of the worries mentioned above and which we’ve heard about first-hand through our Learning Community, Learning Pool decided to create Facebook: a quick guide for people in and around government.

The guide provides a quick overview of how to set-up a Facebook page and the useful things to bear in mind as a government organisation when doing so.

Despite being labelled as a social networking site, it can be effectively used as an engagement site between government organisations and members of thet public that they are finding it increasingly difficult to connect with.
