Social Media is Now Active in City Government

Social media has become a daily part of how we interact with friends and community. In fact, it is estimated that nearly 70% of internet users spend more time with social media sites than any other type of site.

Departments across the City have launched social media sites in order to distribute information, reach a broad audience of residents, and increase our community engagement. As an example of engaging the community, the Police Department was able to solve seven crimes by posting the images of suspects on Facebook.

You can connect with the City’s general government account on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (@DalyCityGov). To learn what other departments and programs have social media accounts, click here.

Another social, by private, free networking platform is Nextdoor. For example, residents, who register by neighborhood, use this tool to post warnings about break-ins, news on missing pets, and recommendations on nearby businesses.

We are also conducting an online poll to learn which social media sites our community members visit most often. Please take a moment to take this quick poll.

The City is excited about the opportunities these social media tools provide for us to connect with the community. If you want to get the latest in City news and engage with fellow community members, take a moment to like us and follow us.
