About the course

Facebook, SnapChat, ChatBots & HouseParty: What’s This Got to Do With Government?

We will spend time working on establishing and managing your platforms; developing engaging content; and ensuring legal compliance related to comments, staff usage, and records retention. One week prior to the course, the instructor will be asking for participant questions, common issues or challenges, and other input to ensure you get the most out of this one-day workshop. Flexibility is the name of the game in social media and we will practice flexibility in the course content to make your time worthwhile!
