Talking About Social Media and Government
by Ari Herzog, Principal of Ari Herzog & Associates and Newburyport City Councilor
MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Flickr were instrumental tools in the elections of President Barack Obama, Senator Scott Brown, and countless politicians around the world. Social media is rewriting the tradition of campaign fundraising and introducing us to the concept of cause marketing. Join Ari Herzog for an interactive discussion of how social media is impacting government and why YOU are more important than ever.
