The research method adopted for this research was survey in which one hundred and fifty questionnaires were administered to the respondents within Osogbo local government secretariat and community while 130 copies of questionnaire were returned. Without doubt, social media have revolutionalized the practice and performance of Public relations at all level particularly with the recent introduction in the local government administration in Nigeria. However, despite the fact that social media have been in our society in about a decade it is yet to be fully appreciated and completely integrated as one of the core channels of information within the local government.
