GPO Launches Facebook Page
The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) has launched a Facebook page in an effort to continue to use social media as a way of increasing transparency and engaging with the public.
GPO’s Facebook page will feature announcements, press releases, agency job listings, photos, videos and a link to the award-winning Government Book Talk blog. GPO joins the White House, National Archives & Records Administration, Library of Congress and other Federal agencies on Facebook. GPO also utilizes other social media tools, such as Twitter and YouTube, to interact with Federal agencies, the library community and the public.
GPO’s Facebook page can be accessed at: www.facebook.com/pages/US‐Government-Printing‐Office/162592897126454?v=wall
