Bury Council has a number of social media feeds to allow you to stay up to date with the latest news and events from Bury Council. You can 'follow us'. 'like us' or simply log on to one of the following accounts to find out more.
Twitter is a social networking service that enables users to send short messages, called 'tweets', and read those from other users. You can post messages from the website, from an application on your mobile phone, from a third party piece of software (such as Tweetdeck), or by sending text messages from your mobile phone (at the standard text message charge).
You can view messages from people or organisations that you have chosen to 'follow' in the same way - including choosing whose updates you want to receive to your mobile phone.
You don't need to register with Twitter to view our updates, but if you do register you'll be able to create your own 'feed' of tweets from people and organisations you're interested in. By registering, you'll also be able to let other people 'follow' your updates and send public and private messages to other users.
Bury Council on Twitter: Follow us @burycouncil to find out the latest news and events. We also post emergency advice such as gritting information, disruption to refuse and recycling collections, school closures and service disruptions on this page.
If you would like to send us a message on Twitter, start your tweet with @burycouncil. This will send a public message to us.
If you would like to send a private message, called Direct Message, use the message option in the right hand column of our profile or use the Direct Message option in your chosen Twitter application.

Facebook is a free social networking website. Users can join networks organised by city, workplace, school, and region to connect and interact with other people. You can use it to share thoughts, internet links, photographs and videos with your friends, as well as create 'events' to invite people to attend. Hundreds of millions of people around the world use Facebook every day to keep in touch with people or interact by sharing favoured web content with others.
Once you've signed up to Facebook, you control who you accept as 'friends' and can control the privacy settings on everything you post to make sure only those you allow to see your posts can access them.
Organisations, companies or causes can have their own Facebook 'page' that users can select to 'like'. If you choose to do this, it means that information and updates put on Facebook by that organisation will appear in your 'news feed' alongside posts from your friends and colleagues.
Bury Council has its own Facebook page that you can subscribe to. It's a handy way to find out about news and events through a channel you might visit more often than this website. You can 'Like' Bury Council on Facebook to find out our lateast news, events and pictures.
