Social Media

The rise in popularity of social media has brought about new worlds of opportunity, both in networking between private citizens, as well as a direct line of communication between local governments and the public it serves. In an ongoing effort to provide up-to-date information in a way that is as easily accessible as possible, Pitt County Government currently maintains accounts with the following social media platforms:

Facebook

Users can “post” comments, images, and video to their pages, which show up in the “news feed” of users who subscribe (i.e. “like” or “follow”) to various account. All Facebook pages for County departments are structured under the official “master page” for Pitt County.
