The US Department of State Office of eDiplomacy will launch an internal social networking site, Statebook. Public CIO News writer Russell Nichols reported some of the details on April 12, 2010. He reports that “the site will use social media tools on a secure network to help employees and diplomatic officials scattered around the globe to communicate, collaborate and more easily identify experts in specific fields, according to Richard Boly, director of eDiplomacy.” Measures are being taken to ensure cyber-security. With more and more documents and information posted online everyday the argument can be made that a secure network like Statebook is in order. Users will be able to create profiles, share resources and articles, and help each other find “credible experts” to work with, according to Boly.
