Stay connected with social media at Olmsted County.
Social networking in government serves two primary functions: to communicate and deliver messages directly to the public and to encourage public involvement, interaction, and feedback. Information which is distributed via social networking must be accurate, consistent, and timely and meet the information needs of the Olmsted County’s intended audience. Social media is used for social networking, and this policy seeks to ensure proper administration of the Olmsted County’s social media sites.
