State Library Staff Member to Speak at National Tech Webinar

Social media offers government a great tool for engaging with citizens, but it comes with its share of challenging questions. How can governments both ensure transparency and protect citizen privacy on social media? With mobile devices replacing agency computers, how do governments maintain centralized control of data? As social media drives the desire for on-demand access to information, how can you leverage social media to improve service to your constituents while still complying with legal requirements?

The South Carolina State Library has found a way to rise to the challenges presented by social media, and you can do the same.
