Secretary of State Kate Brown has begun a blog and revised her agency's Web site in an attempt to tap new social media.
There will be Facebook and Twitter portals.
The blog will offer an insider's take on the work of the agency's four program divisions: Archives, Audits, Corporations and Elections. Among the contents will be news, frequently asked questions, reports, and an occasional question-and-answer format with staff. There is also a section for public comments.
'I believe that social networking and media present a tremendous opportunity for government and the public to have a truly interactive discussion about the state and how it is run,' Brown said.
