Windmills: Harnessing the Power of Social Media

Government representatives and other public agency officials gathered Friday for Gov 2.0 Deluxe Edition. This no-cost social media workshop at the Orange County Transportation Authority was a follow-up to the wildly popular Gov 2.0 event in July.

Orange County's superstars of social media shared strategies and hands-on experience on how to boost communications with these new cost-effective technology tools.
