As a company that believes strongly in the concepts of accountability, transparency and open data, FreeBalance has always been high on social media and its ability to empower and give a voice to anyone with good ideas or a strong opinion.
Our pioneer in the social media space, Doug Hadden, has been leading the social media charge for FreeBalance as the driving force behind the company’s Twitter presence, as well as his work with Storify, LinkedIn and SlideShare. Doug has developed a unique style and voice that breaks through the sometimes stoic face of public financial management.
Now we are building on the work Doug has championed through social media by setting him free as the first of our FreeBalance Ambassadors. Starting today, if you want to stay connected with the cutting edge research, trends, happenings and debates of the world of public financial management, open government, open data and transparency Doug will be holding court on his new Twitter account @dalytics. Doug will continue to provide live commentary from the many industry events he attends and monitors, and we’ll continue to rely on his expert opinion on industry news.
The main FreeBalance Twitter account will be a source for industry news, trends and company updates. Additionally, the FreeBalance account will provide updates on product development, customer stories and will share the best content from across the web on our industry.
This change is only one part of a larger social media refresh that is taking place so stay tuned for more exciting announcements in the weeks and months ahead.
