As a council, we’re aware that “social media” is playing an increasingly important role in keeping people up to date with news, discussion or events happening in their area. By “social media” we’re talking about Facebook, Twitter or other similar services. Many people prefer to get their news online through these services, rather than going to a specific site for updates.
Consequently we’ve just launched our own official Facebook Page and Twitter account. It’s set up so that news items posted on this website will automatically feed through to these services – so users of these services will get the latest news immediately – and with the opportunity to share and comment!
