re: Social Media In Government: Managing The Risks
Social media is being used more and more for customer service at federal agencies. As Nikk mentioned, it is very useful in emergency situations and natural disasters. I see from my own experience that many government executives are visible and active on Linked In. Although there are cybersecurity concerns, it is a good thing that government is becoming more transparent and involved via social media platforms.

There are many innovative examples of agencies using social media. One of the great resources is GSA's Digital Gov blog. Go to: http://blog.howto.gov/

We used Facebook to help coordinate part of the US civilian evacuation during the 2011 disaster in Japan. No better example I can think of.

We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
