If you market to governments and governmental agencies, a new social media directory may be extremely useful to your efforts.
Microsoft just launched a site called Gov2Social, a directory that aims to list state-by-state for the social media participation for elected officials, state government agencies, cities, towns and counties.
The project is counting on users to input their government’s social media participation. It currently has about 500 entries so it’s usefulness is pretty limited at the moment but keep an eye on it if you market and sell to governments.
When the website is populated, it will be possible to sort and analyze top government social media users by city and state. Microsoft also plans to add add podcasts, analytics, case studies and best practices.
