Social Media Community of Practice

Who We Are

The Federal SocialGov Community was launched in June 2012 to research, evaluate, and implement emerging social technologies and strategies for public services. It unites over 1,200 digital managers and specialists at more than 160 federal, tribal, state, and local agencies in a collaborative program aimed at improving the creation, adoption, and evaluation of digital engagement programs.

What We Do

We identify opportunities and challenges to improve government use of social data, and collectively address them for the shared benefit of all agencies. We also help develop shared resources and tools needed to get the job done, including:

Another one of these programs is the U.S. Digital Registry, which is the official resource that agencies, citizens, and developers use to confirm the official status of social media and public-facing collaboration accounts, mobile apps and mobile websites. This creates an additional layer of security by helping prevent exploitation from unofficial sources, phishing scams, or malicious entities.
