Working Better: New Media Collaboration

Working Better

New Media Collaboration

HHS is huge. We have more than 300 social media accounts scattered across the Department, so it can be a challenge to produce unified campaigns and messages.

The HHS Center for New Media is a growing community that connects people, shares best practices, and works together on those social media projects.

The Center for New Media maintains a social media database of all HHS social media accounts, holds monthly calls, publishes a blog, and provides guidance on using social media.

Last year, they began a webinar series to address interest in specific tools and practices. The center brought together several HHS individuals on a topic to present on best practices and share resources with the entire HHS community. The HHS New Media Webinar Series, available on demand, has covered ideation tools, innovations, Twitter chats, and challenges to name a few.
