Why beat ’em when you can just join ’em? The Federal Communications Commission has announced plans to launch an internal on-line social forum for employees to engage and communicate regarding FCC activities. Steven VanRoekel, the managing director of the FCC, also happens to be a former Microsoft exec and is no stranger to on-line happenings. The internal network compliments more extroverted on-line activities: the FCC recently launched a blog and a Twitter feed. Eventually, the internal network will be opened up to outsiders at an undetermined future date.
Just waiting for the Facebook fan page to roll out.
