The New USA.gov- Now with Social Networking, Apps and More

The General Service Administration (GSA) just launched a complete redesign of the government’s web portal, USA.gov. The launch of the new site follows months of online public dialogue to determine users’ preferred format, functionality and design. Thank you to those of you who participated in the discussion on their blog!

The new USA.gov offers a simplified, cleaner look. One of the first things you’ll probably notice about the new site is the large search bar at the top of the screen. In the middle of the homepage, you’ll see a real-time list of the most popular topics that people are searching for.

The very useful Reference Center includes links to historical documents; laws and regulations; local, federal, and national libraries; and online library databases.

The new site also offers new apps, including one that monitors product recalls and another that tracks flight information from the Transportation Security Administration.

At the bottom of each page, you’ll find ways to connect with USA.gov through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and more. You can also subscribe to RSS feeds from the Federal Citizen Information Center and USA.gov.
