The fear of the unknown is a natural human feeling “Lacking of access paradigm” as THE principal obstacle must be reassessed If people understand the benefits to themselves, they will find the way to access The biggest barrier is not knowing how to use online services: people must be guided How to achieve the citizen engagement?
Social media is useful but you must understand how each network works It's not enough to have presence in social media Each network has its own culture and user characteristics that have to be understood
How to achieve the citizen engagement? Examples of the usage of Twitter Twitter can be used beyond a “news post”… could be a support tool for the online services usage… “Very bad instructions from the Contact Center of Government Online” “Why do you think it was a bad service? Tell us please for take corrective actions” “I had a problem because of lack of instructions with the judicial certificated and I am still waiting my money back” “Don’t worry, if you couldn’t made the transaction you will have a refund. About the service, you can put a complaint and make a follow up: these are mechanisms of citizens to improve the program. In any case, we deeply regret the inconvenience. Tell us if you need more help from us” “Thank you for having responded my comment. I am positively impressed! And to be honest, I would like that all the companies treat me this way” “Thanks, we are here for any other concern you have”
How to achieve the citizen engagement? Examples of the use of Twitter Or to help people realize how things have changed “Well I renewed my judicial certificate, I had not done it for 3 years...” “Did you do it online? How did it go?” “It went very well, effective and fast” “Renewing online the judicial certificate is so easy and fast, I will recommend it #notpaidadvertising”
