Social media is promising new opportunities across a broad spectrum of public services. As the Internet and its applications extend globally, an increasing number of governments and their public service agencies are embracing social media as one of the major mechanisms to interact with the public. Social media provides a new wave of web-based applications and channels for citizens to share ideas and opinions and play active roles in various areas in the public sector.

At the same time, social media helps government organizations to actively listen to citizens and constantly monitor their existing services as well as develop new initiatives. Social media is now very much the de facto voice of democracy. And with or without public sector engagement, citizens around the world are continuing to express freely their opinions towards the governmental issues that surround them. For governments of all levels, attention to this shift is critical.
