e-Government, Facebook, technology, local public administration


E-government is the way in which institutions can govern citizens better by integrating innovations in the field of information transmission and processing. Through this material, I have shown that there are local institutions, who can use a facebook page to promote their most important events, but also to keep citizens informed about policies promoted at the community level. The article contains an analysis of the pages belonging to the county towns of Romania, with 41 cases being analyzed.
