Justice Department's Online Revamp

By Ed O'Keefe



The new home page for www.Justice.gov debuted on Thursday.

The Justice Department has launched a redesigned Web site, as well as fresh MySpace, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter accounts.

Direct links:

Facebook: Facebook.com/DOJ

MySpace: Myspace.com/usdoj

Twitter: Twitter.com/TheJusticeDept

YouTube: Youtube.com/TheJusticeDepartment

It's been a big week for online makeovers in the halls of government : Commerce Secretary Gary Locke launched his Twitter feed earlier this week and the Interior Department joined the social media movement on Wednesday. The Labor Department already has a YouTube channel and a Twitter account and will launch its other offerings once it clears the necessary legal hurdles, according to newly minted new media director David Roberts.

White House New Media Director Macon Phillips has coordinated the hiring of online and social media experts like Roberts to redesign or launch Web 2.0 offerings across the government and update and maintain the pages for their respective agencies. Phillips' office also keeps a list of potential candidates to hire once other agencies are ready to make the jump, according to an applicant familiar with the process.
