Twitter and Facebook help with winter advice
Social media gadgetry is helping people keep healthy and safe in Norfolk this winter as Norfolk County Council relaunches its Norfolk Winter social media service after a successful introduction last year.
Throughout the colder months helpful information will be brought together under the Norfolk Winter banner on Twitter, Facebook and for the first time, on a dedicated blog.
The council will add regular updates to both the Norfolk community Facebook page and its @NorfolkCC Twitter account about gritting and disruptions to services, such as libraries or day centres, as well as wider winter-related information.
All winter-related tweets from the @NorfolkCC account will be hashtagged #norfolkwinter.
Organisations and people with any winter-related news and information that would be useful to others are encouraged to get involved, by using the Twitter tag or by posting to the Norfolk community Facebook page at www.facebook.com/Norfolkcc.
