Social Media Tools

Social Media Tools for Community Focused Law Enforcement

The effective integration of WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, and email, will allow local law enforcement agencies to provide time-sensitive notices, with a single posting on a WordPress blog.

The focus of this video series is to set up a WordPress Blog that will serve as an anchor social media tool. Once the WordPress account is established you will be shown how to set up a Facebook Organization Page and a Twitter account. The video series includes instructions on how visitors to your blog can place your Posts on their Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites. The Post on WP will simultaneously appear on the Wall of your Facebook Page, a tweet in Titter, and an email in your email account. The anchor of this video series is WordPress because WP has historically proved to be a stable interface unlike other social media tools. By simply connecting those social media resources to your WordPress blog your “followers” can receive updates on the social media tool of their choice.
