Recognizing the need to build the capacities of government officials to enable them to use social media for socio-economic development, the United Nations Asian and Pacific Training Centre for Information and Communication Technology for Development (UN-APCICT) launched its publication “Getting Started with Social Media Tools in Government” on the third week of September.

A supplement to UN-APCICT’s Module 11 of the Academy of ICT Essentials for Government Leaders on Social Media for Development, this publication is a practical guide that presents “how-to” steps for setting and managing social media tools and technologies in government. As an introductory guide, it aims to provide government officials with a basic understanding of the functions of common social media to enable them to utilize social media for the improvement of the delivery of public services and governance processes.
