We’ve added a “Follow DBA” widget to our upper right sidebar that contains these six icons, all clickable, with a line of text underneath them that reads:
The kcICON project in Kansas City, Missouri is using Facebook and YouTube as a public relations tool. They have recently posted new videos and pictures. The latest video is of demolition of one of the existing approach structures. It is all done for public relations, so the photos and videos are oriented for the general public, showing how the project is moving along, how their tax dollars are being spent, and providing information on lane closures, etc.
I expect we’ll see more use of Facebook, Twitter, etc. on projects in the future. It appears to be effective, at least for the techno-savy crowd!
I am slowly learning and working on getting DBA involved in using some of the social media tools that are very quickly becoming popular means of communicating. DBA has a Facebook Page where you can become a Fan of DBA and see what we are doing. You can also follow us on Twitter. This blog will feed to both of those locations.
And as always, you can also subscribe to our RSS feed.
