The City of Arcadia is announcing the launch of Connect Arcadia, a new social media program designed to provide residents, businesses, and visitors with City information without clogging up your news feed. Beginning with Twitter, this new medium groups similar City functions and services into one account in order to provide followers with maximum exposure to City information with the least amount of clutter.
“Social media has become the primary tool for many to consume news and information. With so many competing interests, it’s hard to keep up with everything without being overwhelmed,” said City Manager Dominic Lazzaretto.
“Connect Arcadia’s innovative approach cuts through all the noise by combining 10 City departments into 4 distinct channels. This is the future for social media.”
