ClearedJobs.Net is proud to sponsor the AFCEA Bethesda’s Federal Technology Virtual Podium Webinar Series. On May 25, 2011, Oscar Morales, Director Information Technology and Resources Management Division, Office of Pesticide Programs presented Social Media at the EPA and Beyond Webinar
Mr. Morales shared that they EPA joined the social media bandwagon early and has been pretty engrossed in using it ever since but recognize that there are ups and downs in this phenomenon. EPA (and the federal government) is in a transitional period as to where social media is going to go, and the EPA fully intends to continue using social media.
Oscar Morales discussed the issues that the government is having with social media and how agencies use these opportunities to get their message out.
Other topics included:
• Social Media/Web 2.0 is still all the rage, come learn how EPA (& the federal government) are engaging this ongoing fad on a daily basis.
• Federal agencies utilize these new opportunities to get their message out, but how?
• There are many uses of social media and many different types (Facebook, Blog, Wiki, Twitter, Youtube, Widgets, Mobile Devices).
