Keeping Up with the Technologies

Sometimes the words that come out of my mouth are pure entertainment to my children. Take my venture into the world of Twitter about a year ago. Although I had an account, I used it exclusively to follow breaking news. I never posted anything—I couldn't imagine anyone being interested in what I had to say. The kids had accounts and I followed them, along with several economics-themed accounts as well. When I broke down and posted my first message, I proudly announced "I did my first twit." You can imagine their laughter, and my shame.

Although I rarely "tweet," I do follow more and more economics news and commentary accounts. (I have 12 followers—most are family.) Of course, I follow the Atlanta Fed on Twitter as well as the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. If you have not had a chance to check out these resources, take a moment and look them over. Also look over those Twitter accounts that the Atlanta Fed follows. There are many great resources for following economic news from across the region.

In addition, the Atlanta Fed has a Facebook presence and a YouTube presence. You can also sign up for RSS feeds of Atlanta Fed content, so you can receive information on a number of topics.
