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.

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.
