Social Media Handbook

The role of technology in the 21st century workplace is constantly expanding. Social media tools such as Facebook, Twitter and blogs can improve interactivity between government agencies and the public, reaching new and different populations from traditional media sources.

King County departments should choose a combination of traditional and social media that complement each other and distribute information to relevant audiences. This handbook is designed to inform employees and the public, and to ensure transparency and consistency when incorporating social media in our communications and outreach efforts.
