As the number of social media users worldwide reaches 3.5 billion, it has evolved into the preferred medium to reach and engage with the masses. Individuals, businesses celebrities and even governments are harnessing the power of social media as an outreach tool.
However, interacting via social media presents challenges around privacy, data management, accessibility, social inclusion, governance, and other policy issues. Though the rapid adoption of social media by citizens and government agencies may have outpaced the regulatory framework, the guiding principles behind many regulations are still relevant.
Challenges in modern governance and enhanced expectations of citizens have turned social media into a unified platform for the citizens to offer feedback on government, public services and policies.
The Social Media for Governance Summit will bring together policy-makers, government bodies, public services, social media platforms and technology providers to brainstorm and learn best global practices for the effective use of social media for government bodies and service providers.
