The U.S. Homeland Security Department’s New Social Media Menu

June 29th, 2009 · No Comments

I wanted to highlight a new list of social media offerings from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) which are on its website here. They include the Department’s here. They include the Department’s two-week-old blog; Facebook, Flickr, YouTube and Twitter sites for various DHS agencies; and even the iTunes offerings from the Transportation Security Administration. And, DHS is asking for user feedback on its social media initiatives:

“Below is the list of tools and sites that the Department and our components use to provide up-to-date information, straight from the source. If a site is not on this list, it is not presently being used by the Department of Homeland Security. If you think something is missing, or if you have any questions, contact us.”

From FEMA’s YouTube page: Administrator Craig Fugate’s “message to the public on the hurricane season”.

Thanks to AndrewPWilson from the U.S. Health and Human Services Department’s New Media unit who mentioned the DHS social media page on his Twitter feed.
