Following in the footsteps of grandmothers everywhere, the Federal Reserve Board has joined Facebook, setting up a page to share news and educational content.
In a bid to improve accessibility and availability, the central bank is now offering visitors the chance to 'like' posts such as an explanation of the Federal Reserve System's five functions.
Posts will include press releases, speeches, testimony, reports, educational materials, frequently asked questions, photos, and videos.
The Fed already has a presence on Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, and LinkedIn. Earlier this year the bank's San Francisco outpost banned employees from tweeting from its Twitter account on personal devices after it was forced to hastily delete a political micro-missive.
