Horner analyzes use of social media by local governments

April 9, 2023 Daily Telegram

Debra Horner, The Daily Telegram: "Back in 2012, only about 18 percent of local officials told us their governments used social media (including 48 percent of jurisdictions with more than 30,000 residents). In 2021, that was up to 29 percent (including 57 percent of those with over 30,000 residents and 61 percent of cities statewide). So, although it has increased, it’s not as if all or even most of our 1,856 local governments statewide have their own social media presence."
