New social media guide for community councils published by IS

The Improvement Service (IS) has published a new guide to social media for community councils and community councillors.

#FollowMe: A Social Media Guide for Community Councillors has been produced by the IS and the National Communications Group, which represents communications staff in all Scottish councils. Written by communications expert Dan Slee, the guide is designed to provide community councils with an introduction to using different social media channels, plus advice on good approaches and strategies that can be used by all community councils.

The publication is available to download for free from the Community Councils website and includes guidance on setting up a Facebook page and Twitter account.
