Last week, the General Service Agency’s Center for Excellence in Digital Government, the USDA and the Federal Web Managers Social Media Sub-Committee hosted a social media open house at USDA headquarters in Washington, D.C. Here’s what I learned, as told using social media — in this case, an iPhone, Twitter and Instagram.
- The USDA has a location-aware mobile app for farmers markets
- The GAO is going to officially launch an iPhone app soon
- The U.S. Department of Education is tweeting at @FAFSA, chronicling Twitter chats with Storify and collaborating internally with Yammer, a microblogging application
- The U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife has an iOS app that lets citizens explore wildlife refuges.
