It’s a confusing world out there for social media users. Is that the real Ashton Kutcher you’re following on Twitter? Is George Takei really posting all that awesome stuff in your Facebook news feed? It’s anybody’s guess.
Celebrities are one thing. But when you need a reliable source to get your facts straight about the law or a state department’s services, legitimacy becomes a much more serious issue.
“Verified social accounts are arguably more important than ever,” writes Luke Stowe, digital services coordinator for the city of Evanston, Ill., in a recent post for GovTech.com. “Not only are there now thousands of government agency pages, but impersonation and parody accounts are common in the #SocialGov space.”
Lucky for you, the California DMV has its official Twitter and Facebook pages verified, making it easy to know you’re getting the real answers. Whether it’s information about the drive test, vehicle registration or tips on driving safety, trust that any information you find on our verified pages will be by the book.
Just look for the blue check mark next to our name on each verified account!
