AFP assists Augusta County on social-media project

Augusta County government is now on Facebook and Twitter – with an assist from Augusta Free Press LLC.

AFP assisted county staff in building presences on Facebook and Twitter for the county. The Augusta County Board of Supervisors voted in February to approve new policy guidelines for the dissemination of public information on the social-media portals.

Augusta Free Press LLC consulted with staff on the development of the policy guidelines and then worked with staff members to set up the new pages.

“We think this move by the county will encourage more participation in local government by county residents,” AFP owner Chris Graham said. “Many county residents are on Facebook, and as more and more ‘like’ the new county page on Facebook, they will see news and events related to county government in their news feeds. This will be a great tool for people to keep tabs on what their government is doing.”
