Electronic communications channels
The most important communication tools of the City of Kalajoki are the city's website and social media channels. The management of electronic channels is decentralised to various services.
The City of Kalajoki website www.kalajoki.fi was revamped and published in January 2016. The online service functions as one of the municipality’s key communication channels. The online service is used for providing topical and accurate information to residents of the municipality, other interest groups and anyone interested in the municipality. In addition to sharing information, the website also serves as a service point and influencing channel. The service is also part of the municipality’s reputation management and marketing, a ‘business card’ of sorts.
The online service is built to be user-oriented. Particular attention has been paid to the ease of finding information and navigation. Another aim was to use clear standard language in the website’s headings and text content, and the accessibility of the website was also a priority.
