Social Media & Video

When I joined the Indiana Department of Natural Resources in 2008, the government agency had no social media presence.  State officials were fearful of negative public feedback. There were also security concerns. I worked with the governor’s office and Indiana Office of Technology to form the first statewide social media committee and established guidance for agencies wanting to use social media. I developed the online community guidelines and instructed my DNR colleagues how to create content and interact with the public on various social media platforms. Indiana DNR is now a leader in state government for social media use. You can view the guidelines and a listing of social media accounts on this web page.
