Goodyear Goes Social
GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (Feb. 15, 2012) The City of Goodyear has gone live with social media. Residents, visitors and businesses can now "Like Us" on Facebook at GoodyearAZGov, "Follow Us" on Twitter at GoodyearAZGov. For the past year, the City's videos have been on YouTube at CityofGoodyearAZ, the Ballpark on Facebook and Twitter, and the Fire Department on Twitter.
The official citywide Goodyear social media sites went live in January and have already gained many "followers." Since social media is how many people stay connected, there was an obvious need to reach these individuals in a manner they prefer.
According to Goodyear webmaster Cathy Hozian, "Another great asset of social media is its 'real-time' feature. Residents will be notified of emergency road closures, recreation registration deadlines, or other need-to-know items right on their smart phones."
Goodyear's Communications Office is responsible for the content, monitoring and policy enforcement of all the social media sites.
