New Ideas?

It has been several months since we began Lee Linked, our social media program.  We also have deployed Phase II of Lee Linked, which included two pieces of technology that no other local government in the State is using: live chat and Quick Response Codes.  We want to take a moment and gather feedback on all this new techonology and your thoughts on improvements to the program.  A discussion of new techonology you would like to see used by your local government is also relevant.  Please let us know how we are doing.  Email us at linked@leecountync.gov, Facebook us here, or chat with us here

IF YOU REALLY WANT TO EXCITE US, scan the QR Code below from your smartphone (Blackberry, Android phone, i-Phone, etc.) and send us an email from your phone!  Just download a free QR Code reader, scan the code and send the email.  It's that easy.  Many free readers exist, and a Google search will reveal most of them.  I-nigma seems to work across many smartphones and most types of codes, and you can download it by visiting http://www.i-nigma.mobi/ from your phone.  On the Android market, "Barcode Scanner" works exceptionally well too.  These are just a couple, and the choice is entirely yours.  Lee County Government does not endorse nor has any affiliation with any such QR Code applications.
