Social Networking in the 21st Century

During the day I am the Marketing Manager for Cleveland Public Power, and as such it is my job to promote the state of Ohio’s largest municipal electric company, and while doing so promote the efforts of Cleveland Mayor Frank G. Jackson to make Cleveland “a green city on a blue lake”.
Last week during our monthly PIO (Public Information Officer) meeting, we had the pleasure of a presentation given by Cool Cleveland founder Thomas Mulready. Mulready’s presentation focused heavily on the need for public information officers to embrace alternative information sources such as Cool Cleveland, as well as social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.
Anyone who has visited this blog understands that I might be well intentioned, but regularly posting comes sporadically for me. It is my goal to increase my presence in the upcoming months, and prior to this meeting I had given some serious thought to how I could utilize alternative information sources to help with my job.
I have a Facebook page – of sorts, a find invited me and set up a page, but I’ve not done much with it since. I’m going to delve a little further into that realm and check out the Twitter world too!
Let me know your thoughts on Social Networking, I’d love to hear your stories! That will also let me know that someone is reading!

    Well … I can help you get up to speed. Maybe we can get together for an hour or so next week. I have some good info to share about Twitter. I really like that platform – micro blogging. But I think that it is a great vehicle for city gov’t.
