Facebook – time to share

Last summer I undertook a significant research project looking at how British police forces use Facebook to engage with their communities. I have shared this work with a number of colleagues and I have been encouraged to share this more widely.

How Staffordshire Police uses its Facebook page is going to be used by the social-media company as an example to companies worldwide. Two representatives from Facebook will be attending a police training day for 35 other police forces at HQ.

Everyone is to busy these days so I have split the project into a number of shorter themed updates which I will post over the next few weeks. These findings from have already been shared with Facebook and many forces via College of Policing learning events. Further information about how my own force uses Facebook can be found by reading Facebook’s Case Study of Staffordshire Police available via this link

The series of posts will cover:

The final post will highlight the key issues facing forces in using Facebook in the future. I hope some of you find it useful and I welcome any feedback.
