Social Media :: Diplomacy and Democracy

Who formulates best practices for social media in government? 

In the U.S., there are several groups who establish governance for using social media for government communications and collaboration.  Webcontent.gov   provides general guidance.  Web Manager University offers orientation for web professionals new to government practices vis a vis social media. The  Web Content Managers Forum may have restrictions for membership.

At the Department of State, The Public Webmasters Symposium offers best practices for eDiplomats. 

In a quasi e-treaty, Estonia and Spain have signed a safer social networking agreement.  The signatories pledged to advise the European Commission of their  self-declaration and to explain how they plan to implement the provisions described in the agreement.
