My press release is on the United States Government during the financial crisis. This is a timeline and this has many press releases. I will pick only one to talk about it. The reason why I picked this press release is because I have an interest in the United States government. This press release is from the Federal Reserve and the Federal Reserve is saying that in 2010 the financial markets have improved. However, because of the consequences of the housing markets the Federal Reserve needs to make modifications because the market is slightly recovering.

For those of you that don’t know the function of the Federal Reserve, it’s The Federal Reserve System, or the FED. The FED is the banking system for the United States. The FED was created on December 23, 1913. Woodrow Wilson singed the Federal Reserve Act into law (federalreserve.gov/faqs). The FED handles the United States credit, and tries to have the United States have full employment and stable pricing. Basically the FED is the nation’s payment system.

What I would do to make this press release more social media friendly is I would use Twitter. I feel that Twitter would keep people entertained, and informed on press releases that are generally boring. Since Twitter is only 140 characters this will be an advantage so that people won’t be bored to death. Read this press release on the FED and tell me that Twitter wouldn’t be a great way to not only sum it up, but to get people’s opinions.
