Social Media on Capitol Hill
The Congressional Management Foundation has released a new report about the use of social media on Capitol Hill.
The 16-page document says congressional offices are using social media as a way to monitor public opinion, as a tool to get the word out about lawmakers’ messages and activities, and as another way to communicate with constituents.
The study says younger staffers see more value in the use of social media than older staffers.
You can read the Congressional Management Foundation’s article, “Social Media Used Extensively by Congress,” which was posted today. Here is the pdf of the report.
