SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY

The City of San Luis Obispo provides numerous channels to engage and inform the community.  Specifically, the City strives for:

  • To engage with their customers in an environment already familiar and popular with the customer with timely and appropriate bi-directional correspondence
  • To make it simpler and more efficient for citizens to get in touch with the Government
  • To gain real-time customer sentiment, language, needs and informed future trends
  • That provides strategic direction for broad marketing and communications campaigns
  • That leverages off the framework and tools already established and maintained by social media platforms
  • That provides customers with the mobility to interact with the government via social apps no matter where they are or what time it is
  • That encourages transparency and promotes reliability, confidence and trust in the customer experience
  • To help guide conversations in real-time, either by reinforcing positive feedback or by diffusing negative comments through using timely, moderated, direct engagement
  • To facilitate and support agencies to network around common threads and issues.

The principles are designed to be flexible yet provide a professional, friendly and consistent experience for community members wishing to interact with the City through social media channels. Local government, even online, is people serving people.
