Going Social

Tackling social media with Kristy Dalton

Everyone is on social media. You. Your best friend. Your best friend’s kid. Even your 80 year old grandmother. Then there’s your favorite taco joint, hair stylist, dry cleaner, mechanic, clothing brand, music band. And, don’t forget the company you work for, the city you live in, and the bank that cashes your paycheck. Quite literally, everyone. Even us – and you should totally be following us too!

However, even though everyone is on social media, not everyone engages with the various platforms the same way. Listen in on Chief Judge Fred Lauten’s conversation with Kristy Dalton as they talk about the government sector’s foray into the social media world, why a government online presence is important, and how the inherent nature of the judicial system impacts how it connects with the community.
