United States Army launches Blog, Facebook Fan Page

picture-51 facebook_pic

This past week, the United States Army launched their official blog and Facebook fan page. I found several interesting points from an article on Army.mil titled, “Army launches official blog, facebook page:

“The blogosphere is a place where a lot of different people are at,” Lindy Kyzer said. “We know our active-duty Soldiers are there. We know that our family members are there. We know that there’s people simply there who choose to get their information from blogs.”

The Army Facebook site is also looking for comments and discussion. One page asks readers “Why did you join the Army?” A bit lower is a banner for the Year of the NCO and readers are asked “Who is your favorite NCO?”

The Facebook page features Army podcasts. It has dozens of Army photos from Flickr. It has links to Army Web micro-sites, and it has a page of information about the new Army Live blog site.
