A key part of the modernisation of Government communications is the greater use of social media. Merrionstreet.ie has a presence on a number of social media platforms. The amount spent on advertising the video" Ireland at its best" for Ireland's Rugby World Cup bid was €9,500, sponsored posts appeared on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. The posts were targeted at "all adults" to both a national and international audience.
