COUNTY’S SOCIAL MEDIA PRESENCE HITS MILESTONE ON FACEBOOK

 

            Doña Ana County’s social media presence marked a milestone this week when its Facebook page surpassed 3,000 followers.

            Doña Ana County launched its social media initiative on July 1, 2014. As of Monday, Jan. 1, 2018, the Facebook account stood at 3,008 total page likes, while the county’s Twitter followers numbered 1,040. The county’s LinkedIn account sports 577 followers, and its Instagram account has 602 followers. Sixty two people subscribe to the county’s YouTube site, where the Kitty Condo Project video alone has been viewed 42,669 times.

            The social media initiative aims to provide Doña Ana County residents with convenient tools to better communicate with county and elected officials, and to receive information on mobile devices without having to visit the county website.

            “Having a social media presence opens a lot of doors for interacting with the public,” said Doña Ana County Commission Chairwoman Isabella Solis. “A very large part of our population uses these platforms multiple times throughout the day, so having these added channels to engage our residents keeps them better connected to topics and issues that affect them and their families.”

            LinkedIn is an employment networking tool that connects its user contacts with businesses and services, and it provides Doña Ana County with another avenue to advertise job postings and trainings.

            Doña Ana County’s Twitter followers can stay in touch with real-time updates on regular meetings of the Board of County Commissioners and other important news events happening countywide.

            Followers of the Doña Ana County Facebook page can stay up-to-date with all public meeting schedules, agendas, road closures and other important notices from all departments at the Doña Ana County Government Center. 

            All social media content is produced by Doña Ana County’s Public Information Office and is coordinated through the county’s Social Media Technician, Corrie Stone-Fielder.
