ACADEMIC WRITING FOR UNDERGRADUATE AND POSTGRADUATE STUDENTS
The paper presents the results of empirical research aimed at analyzing the effectiveness of the social media usage by administrations of Russian cities. We use both qualitative and quantitative methods to assess the content of municipalities’ SNS accounts, as well as ways of communication between public employees and citizens in the digital public policy sphere.
