Social Media in Cambridge

In an effort to increase communication and information sharing with residents, several City departments now participate in social media. The intended purpose behind establishing City of Cambridge social media sites is to disseminate information from the City, about the City, to its citizens. As a public entity, the City must abide by certain standards to serve all its constituents in a civil and unbiased manner. These sites are not a replacement for other forms of communication, and requests for information and services, complaints, etc. should be shared with the department and/or City via standard practices and established channels.
