FCW : September 15, 2013
September 15, 2013 FCW.COM 23 and Explosives and president of the American Council for Technology. "By mentioning something on social media, another fed- eral counterpart will pick up on it, and they might discover a commonality they didn't know about beforehand," said Holgate, who stressed that he was speaking in his ACT capacity and not for ATF. Social media also gives public of cials a way to be more responsive. David McClure, associate administrator of GSA's Of ce of Citizen Services and Innovative Technolo- gies, demonstrated as much when he tweeted about an error on the CIO.gov site and noted that it was being xed. The bene ts of engagement Nevertheless, experts have varying opinions on the level of social media involvement CIOs should have. Coleman said being an active tweeter helps her understand what's going on in the industry and how GSA is perceived in the broader marketplace. "Social media is a vital tool for that," she added. Jimmy Gardner, owner and chief engineer at technol- ogy consulting rm teKnoluxion, considers social media a must. "I think it's a huge necessity, particularly if you are a CIO," he said. "They can learn from their followers and vice versa." Yet Dan McSwain, who worked with VanRoekel at the Federal Communications Commission, said CIOs do not have to be active participants to bene t from social media. "The more important question is how are CIOs using social media to listen," said McSwain, who is now a partner at a new public relations rm specializing in digital engage- ment called Geer Strategies. "A CIO needs to be looking at not just how their agency in particular is being commu- nicated with, but how the issues that are critical to their mission objectives are being discussed on social media." Part of the challenge of using social media is blending or separating personal and professional uses, although opinions differ on whether there can be a meaningful separation of the two. That duality is evident in CIOs' biographies on Twitter. VanRoekel's bio states that his "tweets are captured per Presidential Records Act" while Hashmi wrote that his "views are mine alone, not my employer's." History shows, however, that actions taken on a personal account can in uence the public's perception of the pro- fessional. Look no further than disgraced ex-congressman Anthony Weiner for evidence of that. "I am of the opinion that you cannot separate the per- sonal and professional," Cureton said. "You have to gure out how to do both at the same time." And although the majority of CIO Council members do not have a public presence on Twitter or Facebook, it doesn't mean they don't understand and appreciate social media's value. Speaking at a recent conference in Washington, D.C., Margie Graves, acting CIO at the Department of Homeland Security, talked about social media's relevance. The urry of communication after the Boston Marathon bombings is a situation "where you see social media, and the use of mobility, coming back to the law enforcement community as information that they utilize," said Graves, who does not have a public presence on either Twitter or Facebook. Although simply monitoring social media can be help- ful, Holgate said the real bene ts come from engagement. "Participating is equally if not more important than lis- tening," he said. "The fact that you can communicate with a broader community shouldn't be seen as something that gives you pause. It should be seen as an opportunity." ■ @gwynnek So meta --- this is the second time someone has mentioned potato chips in casual conversation in the last hour.
