USA.gov Embraces Web 2.0 Tools

Filed under: federal,government,web 2.0 — Lynne @ 1:06 pm

hp_flag1The federal government web portal USA.gov has a page dedicated to Government 2.0 resources. The Government 2.0 page links to Web 2.0 tools from USA.gov and  other federal government sites. With these tools, USA.gov hopes to engage the public,  improve access, and put a face on  government information and resources.

Here are just a few of the Web 2.0 tools you can find:

    RSS feeds –  Library of RSS feeds from across the government
    Web Chat – Live personal assistance available weekdays from 8:00 AM until 8:00 PM Eastern Time

Side note: Do you find the name Goverment web 2.0 a little clunky? You’re not alone. Mashable recently asked its readers to help rename “Goverment 2.0”. Here are the results.
