FirstNet is pleased to announce new additions to its social and multimedia presence with the launch of an official YouTube channel and a Multimedia section on firstnet.gov. Our new social media channel and website page contain videos that tell the history of FirstNet and focus on how a nationwide public safety broadband network will enhance communications and coordination for public safety disciplines.
Launching this new social platform is just one of many ways that we will continue our outreach to and communications with the public safety community. Acting General Manager TJ Kennedy emphasized the value of social networks to FirstNet in his recent article on LinkedIn where he says “For FirstNet, social media has become an effective way to increase our outreach to stakeholders and share information about our activities, as well as highlight some of the activities of our stakeholders.”
Viewers can subscribe to the new YouTube channel and be notified whenever a video is uploaded at youtube.com/FirstNetGov. Organizations and individuals are able to share and embed the videos on their websites by clicking the share link under the video or by clicking one of the social network icons to share the video on a social platform.
