Does the Department of Homeland Security Need a Better Social Media Strategy?

Argument in favor

Emergency social media posts from the government can easily get lost in the flood of other posts — DHS needs a better plan for making sure the word gets out.

As society evolves technologically and through new social systems, we have a responsibility to communicate through those new methods. To limit emergency services to say, radio and television, when millions of citizens are "cord cutters" or utilizing web radio systems, is irresponsible, its akin to yelling at deaf people instead of using sign language.

Social media efficacy won't increase unless it's appropriated for. 500,000 is pretty lite.

Argument opposed

Or, DHS could just google "social media dos and don'ts" for emergency tweeting and posting, y'know, save us all some money?

If our security is based on a social media strategy, we have serious problems.

Existing emergency television and radio alerts will suffice. A social media alert usually follows with verification by tv or radio. Since the older generations predominantly don't use social media technology, this would be an unnecessary $500 million expenditure.

The department of homeland security is one of the last departments that needs a strong social media presence.
