From our In General blog ... Breaking news from the 2010 Conference of Western Attorneys General Annual Meeting: The Washington State Attorney General's Office has won the 2010 WAGGY Award for best social media!
The award statement reads in part: "A number of Attorneys General use social media to reach out to their constituents to better inform consumers. However, one office's use of Facebook, Twitter and other social media clearly stood out. This office uses its Facebook page and other social media not only to inform the public of current news and events, but also uses these new and evolving venues to interact with the people. From answering consumer questions to providing direct feedback to the public, they foster a strong connection with the public by using social media as a two-way exchange. What better way to tell your consumers that you are listening?"
Congratulations to all the AGO staffers who have contributed to our social media efforts.
