Social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and You- Tube have become commonplace tools for government outreach. Agencies tweet about everything from develop- ments in medical research to public safety information. Federal Facebook pages offer a similar scope of govern- ment missives, while YouTube provides a collection of brie ngs, speeches and agency news. And the number of social media platforms continues to expand, with services such as Pinterest growing in popularity among government agencies this year. Against that backdrop, agencies have started retaining and archiving social media. It s a challenging endeavor. They need to determine which communications must be preserved and then devise archival strategies for a still- evolving set of platforms. "The social media landscape changes frequently, and the tools and platforms that we use to engage with the public constantly evolve," said Richard Stapleton, senior deputy at the Digital Communications Division and senior Web strategist at the Department of Health and Human Serv- ices. "This past year, our of ce began using Vine, Pinterest, Tumblr and Storify. Each of these platforms requires a new evaluation and approach."
