Resources for government social media professionals

Dec 15, 2022

Working in a niche field like government social media comes with its own unique challenges. Where do you go to ask questions? Celebrate wins? Whether you’re brand new to this field or are a socialgov pro, we encourage you to get involved with your government social media community through these resources:

Free GSM network & bi-weekly chat

While a lot of great collaboration happens publicly on social networks, the GSM network is different because this is a space exclusively for employees of government agencies and educational institutions only.

You can easily connect with fellow government social media professionals by asking questions, responding to posts, even starting a direct 1:1 chat or a group chat. Some other benefits include:

  • Participating in our live, text-only, bi-weekly Government Social Media Chat (GSMChat) on topics most important to this profession.
  • Access to available social media network contacts.
  • Occasional free webinars and a newsfeed with questions, helpful answers & conversations with fellow socialgovs just like you!

Join by filling out this brief questionnaire, and after verifying your information, we’ll approve your request to join. For quickest approval, enter your official work email.
