Blogs, Twitter, Facebook and more

The City of Round Rock was an early adopter of social media as a way to connect with citizens and others interested in the City. The City uses blogs, Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and YouTube to enhance our communication efforts.

Blogs
Community Conversations is the City of Round Rock's blog site. Launched in July 2007, it features several blogs, the most active of which are The Water Spot, advice on water conservation; Reader's Exchange, a fantastic review of books and much more by Linda Sappenfield of the Library staff, and Special Events from Parks and Recreation.

 

Twitter
The City of Round Rock launched a Twitter account, @roundrocknews, in June 2008. Give it a follow if you want to keep with the latest news from the City. Feel to free to ask questions or comment on what we're doing there.

 

Facebook
The City's Facebook Page debuted in July 2008. It's a great place to comment on blog posts and video content, and share your thoughts on what's going on in Round Rock.

 

Flickr
The unsung hero of our social media tools has got to be our Flickr group. It's a fantastic repository of great pictures of Round Rock's people and places. Have a look around and see if you don't agree Round Rock is home to many, many talented photographers.

 

YouTube videos
Our online video presence is fed by YouTube. Promotional and educational videos can be accessed there as well as an archive of the City's former monthly newsmagazine, City Focus.

Google+
In 2011, the City started experimenting with Google+ If you are active on Google+, Circle the City of Round Rock to get news and information from us.


Social media goals

Our social media goals are:

  • Provide additional channels of input for citizens and other potentially-affected interests
  • Increase the transparency of the City's decision-making process
  • Facilitate a sense of community
  • Reach new audiences with City messages and information. 


The Rocky award 

The Rocky is an award we bestow on those who promote Round Rock -- sometimes unwittingly -- on the web.

We created it as a way to recognize those who pull for the underdog -- yeah, even though we're 100,000-plus population, winner of countless awards and accolades, we still think of ourself as the little guy.

Checkout all of our Rocky award winners.
