Staffordshire Police’s Facebook page was highlighted as a great example of social media engagement in the House of Lords today by one of Facebook’s most senior managers.
Simon Milner, Policy Director UK, Middle East and Africa, Facebook cited the way Staffordshire Police engage with our Facebook fans when giving evidence at a Lords Select Committee on communications looking into social media offences.
When answering about how social media platforms can educate users about using social media lawfully and responsibly, Simon said “Some of the best examples we see of this type of communication is actually by police… The Staffordshire Police have got a very active social media manager and their page is tremendously informative about what’s going on in Staffordshire, whether it’s about traffic things, about missing people, about criminals on the run, whatever the issue is, but they also can and do use that page to communicate with their many hundreds of thousand of fans about issues like this.”
Thanks for the compliment Simon, our page is a success because of the way our amazing fans get engaged with our content, last month our Facebook reach was 1.4 million and team read over 2,300 fans comments to Staffordshire Police.
