Agencies are using social media now more than ever, according to findings by Market Connections.

The study found more than 90 percent of federal agencies surveyed use social media.

The findings show the top reason for both both agencies and contractors to use social media is to "inform decisionmaking."

Mark Amtower, host of Federal News Radio's "Amtower Off Center," explains how you can leverage that use to reach agencies.
