Social Media & EU Institutions
More Europe online!
What harm could it do?
Nonetheless, bits of humour too..
Active participation
Human conversation
Customer service
How much do you want to know about the EU-US transatlantic trade & investment partnership/ #TTIP ?
So, why social media in EU public affairs?
EU mythbusters via social media
Factual statement made by EC Representation in Germany on social media to quickly respond to false interpretations related with the EU seed regulation that appeared in the media!
The paper recommends greater use of social media for the creation of stronger bonds between politicians and citizens
in Europe, which could improve electoral participation and consequently contribute to overcoming citizens’ apathy and the lack of democracy at the EU level.

Return on influence is everlasting"

Social media & ROI
The local conversational model
"Engaging with citizens online doesn’t take a social media ‘guru’ or ninja. Common sense, some digital knowhow and basic tools, and an open, friendly approach are your key assets. However, increasingly, we are also beginning to understand the need to be able to reach out locally".

Content strategy: a view from Confab London
"We need content armies! Responsibility for content needs to be taken seriously and be worked into job descriptions so there is accountability for creating and managing content. Sally Bagshaw in her talk":
