Michigan government has long embraced the use of social media. As an extension to traditional channels of constituent engagement, the state uses social platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Instagram, video live streaming and audio podcasts to create a more accessible and participatory government.

Unique to state government, Michigan's statewide social media director and digital content administrator guides social media policy, use, training and oversight of the Statewide Social Media Governance Council for the state's social media program.
