Local government social media research


Ian Vaughan, Intranet Manager for Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council, has kindly given me permission to share his social media research on my blog.

This research was part of his university dissertation – it aimed to discover about web 2.0 and enterprise 2.0 technologies in local government and learn how the sector is embracing these new technologies. It also expored the factors inhibiting adoption of these technologies in local government.

There’s plenty of interesting data in there about current adoption of social tools and barriers to future adoption. Thanks to Ian for agreeing to share his information.
