Social Media Snapshot Available

Social Media Monitoring provides a more complete understanding of key State and Local Government Issues

Stateside Associates, the leading state and local government affairs firm, today announced the availability of its Social Media Snapshot service. The service provides corporations and trade associations with current summaries of the online conversations, the social platforms preferred, and the language most commonly used throughout posts and external events that generated conversation concerning state and local government issues.

According to Constance Campanella, President and CEO of Stateside Associates, "Snapshot uses a focused search to monitor how issues are being discussed by influential activists on social media and presents only the most relevant results in a concise and easy to understand format." In one case, Stateside uncovered a Tweet that gave more than a months' advance notice of a bill adverse to clients' interests.

Social Media is today's preferred and most enlightening method of communication - for state and local issue politics, regulators, concerned groups and associations, and activists. Stateside's Social Media monitoring sources include hundreds of millions of blogs, online forums and web media, in addition to the more than one billion social networking accounts including Twitter and Facebook.

The new service is being offered at a low introductory rate - $995 for three Social Media Snapshot reports covering one or two issues. To discuss whether Social Media Monitoring for State and Local Government Relations can meet specific organizational needs, please contact Graham Grossman, Manager of Social Media Services at or (703) 525-7466 ext 260.
