I recently read an interesting post that explained how public sector agencies are using social media to help build brands that reflect the true value of their services and counter the perceptions created through high profile "worst case" news stories found in traditional media.
The article explains how the average U.S. citizen has a rather limited understanding of the child welfare system. The understanding they do have (more...)
