PTI Staff Contact: Dale Bowen, Deputy Executive Director for Program Development, 202-626-2456

PTI’s most recent Quick Poll explores how local government agencies are using social media to disseminate information. This poll looked at the types of platforms being utilized, in addition to which agencies maintain policies, strategies, budgets and use metrics to better manage their social media efforts.

  • 63% of respondents stated that they do not have an enterprise-wide social media strategy
  • 45% stated that the IT department coordinates their government’s social media efforts

PTI would like to thank Media Cause for its help in developing the Quick Poll questions.
