Thanks for the resources. Our MAPP Leadership Team has just decided that they really want to delve into social media to promote our community priorities and I'm looking for a champion. Any suggestions about who good leaders for development might be or sectors to find them?

The Northern Kentucky Health Department uses Facebook to promote smoking cessation and to connect people with resources to help them quit smoking. Here's the link to our site: http://www.facebook.com/StopSmokingNKHD?ref=t"

 

Hi Sonja,

I think the "leaders" for social media development will vary from community to community. I suggest you ask around among public-minded businesses, nonprofits, and youth or student groups in the Wichita area: "Who really uses this well and can lead the effort for us, or show us how to do it?"  Maybe its a marketing or PR firm.  Maybe some high school or college students--they probably use it more & better than anyone older.

 

One caution, though: You certainly need to be in social media, because so many people you want to reach are there.  But don't limt your web-based outreach to Facebook, Twitter, etc. There are still plenty of heavy Internet & web users who have been avoiding joining those popular sites (including ME! I don't want one more thing to keep up with--maybe I'll join when I retire :) So, still make an effort to reach people by direct e-mail and a MAPP-related website or webpages. But, I've been told, there's software that enables you to update Facebook, Twitter, and your own website at the same time.  So, it may not be that time consuming to keep multiple web outreach efforts going.

Hey Paul,

Good to hear from you. I agree that there are many who disengage intentionally from facebook, et al. There are so many ways to connect, and so few resources/minutes in the day. We just want to invest in the biggest bang for the buck, and are happy to follow in the steps of any others.

Happy New Year,

Sonja

Has anyone used a NING site for MAPP. In what ways did you use the site? For collaboration for partners or reaching out to the community?
