US State Dept and Hilary Clinton on using social media tools

I came across this article Chasing Hilary Clinton by Danielle Cave about how Hilary Clinton and the US State Department (think the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs) use social media to keep those interested informed.

What amazed me was the US State Department is using all of the most common free tools in a combined way.  They are using Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, a blog and You Tube and even down to a google map showing you Hilary’s travels.

Now I’m not saying for 1 minute that Hilary actually writes stuff herself.  I know she would have a team doing it but I wonder just  how big that team is ?.

      Hi Ray
