Juneau working on social media policy
The City and Borough of Juneau is beginning to develop a social media policy.
JUNEAU- The City and Borough of Juneau is beginning to develop a social media policy.
City manager Kim Kiefer says Juneau is "behind the curve" with social media. She says government needs to try to reach out to everybody in a community. And she says the city is probably not connecting with a part of Juneau's population because not everyone visits the city website for information.
City departments are not to open accounts on sites like Twitter and Facebook until a social media policy is in place. Those that already use social media, though, can continue doing so.
That includes Juneau Public Libraries, which has had an internal social media policy since 2011. The public libraries have a blog and presence on Facebook and Twitter.
