DPD is meeting the changing technical environment of social media head on. DPD’s new social media portal conveniently consolidates the department’s Facebook sites, Twitter, blogs, RSS feeds, and listservs in one location at www.seattle.gov/dpd/About/GotaQuestion/DPDS017632.asp. The site includes three facebook pages, 27 RSS feeds, and more than 20 listservs.
DPD embraced social media as a way to better inform the public about current events, news, and project updates. “DPD is making sure it utilizes these popular social media sites to inform the public about important projects and work. We don’t want to lose the opportunity to inform the public about what we are doing at DPD,” said Alan Justad, DPD Deputy Director.
