Transcript of Social Media Week SMEM Results

Social Media for Emergency Management Post-Sandy Analytics Focus on your mission Allocate Resources What type of content is most effective? Top 13 Cities reached are in FEMA Region 2 The audience is 25-54 years old and is most likely female. Overwhelmingly content was shared peer to peer (i.e. virally) Lessons Learned It was extremely helpful to have developed a year’s worth of posts and tweets in advance for staff to use and reference. Column A broadly categorizes the messages into topics, allowing the user to apply a filter and display the message choices for the scenario. Column B contains a recommended time to post the message. Top 4 followers have over 136,000 followers Having built the Facebook and Twitter pages in advance allowed the Borough to immediately assume ownership and start implementing what they learned. Having two “dummy” sites (one of Facebook and one on Twitter) allowed the participants to practice their newly learned skills through live drill exercises without the fear of friends or colleagues seeing their posts. There was a lot of concern about privacy. To ensure nobody’s personal information could be compromised we set up a “fake” Facebook account (in the name of the Borough’s first Mayor) for staff to login and use instead of their personal accounts. Distributing the EPA workflow for how to respond to a post was incredibly helpful to the participants to help illustrate that sometimes the best answer is no answer. It is essential to have a strong social media policy in place and enforce that policy. #SMWSMEM
