Remember, the ‘social’ is the most important thing here. The ‘media’ is secondary. Things change so quickly in the social media world, that it’s better to focus on your audience, engaging with them and building relationships. Don’t get caught up in the technology, that’s not the important part.

This guide was originally created as part of our MyCommunity project. It was delivered in partnership with Locality and funded by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG).
