I just stumbled upon an interesting article on the NYT blog: “Government 2.0 Meets Catch 22“. Here is a short quote – which summarizes what is going on:
“We have a Facebook page,” said one official of the Department of Homeland Security. “But we don’t allow people to look at Facebook in the office. So we have to go home to use it. I find this bizarre.”
Another proof that Government officials are testing the usefulness of social media applications, but are still not sure of the value added.
