DOÑA ANA COUNTY LAUNCHES SOCIAL MEDIA INITIATIVE

DOÑA ANA COUNTY LAUNCHES SOCIAL MEDIA INITIATIVE

            Starting July 1, Doña Ana County will have a new social media presence with the launch of its profiles on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

            The social media initiative aims to provide Doña Ana County residents with convenient tools to better communicate with county and elected officials, and to receive information on mobile devices without having to visit the county website.

            “Having a social media presence opens a lot of doors for interacting with the public,” said Doña Ana County Manager Julia Brown. “A very large part of our population uses these platforms multiple times throughout the day, so having these added channels to engage our residents keeps them better connected to topics and issues that affect them and their families.”

            LinkedIn, an employment networking tool that connects its user contacts with businesses and services, will provide Doña Ana County with another avenue to advertise job postings and trainings.

            Doña Ana County’s Twitter followers can stay in touch with real-time updates on regular meetings of the Board of County Commissioners and other important news events happening countywide.

            Followers of the Doña Ana County Facebook page can stay up-to-date with all public meeting schedules, agendas, road closures and other important notices from all departments at the Doña Ana County Government Center.  

            All social media content is produced by Doña Ana County’s Public Information Office and is coordinated through the county’s new Social Media Technician, Corrie Stone-Fielder.

            For more information, visit Doña Ana County’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ DonaAnaCounty.
