Talentlink offers functionality to post to multiple social media platforms such as Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter are just a few of the 400 social media platforms Talentlink connects with.  Solihull MBC have recently started posting to Twitter and the feedback has been "it's really easy and simple to use and looked good when posted to the site".


You simply click the icon from the posting tab and enter your organisations account information.

You may want to discuss your social media strategy with your communications team and make them aware of the features within Talentlink.

In the meantime I wanted to share what I thought to be an interesting and thought provoking White Paper on Social Media in Local Government to address concerns and myths about social media platforms.

Comms2Point0 and IEWM have teamed up to take a snapshot of what social media looks line in local government across the West Midlands region.

As part of the findings, they surveyed people in the sector. 100 per cent had Facebook and Twitter and 97 per cent said this would improve. Trust and training emerged as clear issues.

The paper also addresses some of the challenges individuals and organisations are facing and provides over 30 case studies to help you understand your own digital and media landscape.
