You Can Now Like the Fed on Facebook

For those of you that spend too much time on Facebook—and, yes, you know who you are!—you can now keep track of Janet Yellen and her gang via the Federal Reserve Board’s newly launched Facebook page

For those of you that spend too much time on Facebook—and, yes, you know who you are!—you can now keep track of Janet Yellen and her gang via the Federal Reserve Board’s newly launched Facebook page.

Already receiving more than 13,000 “likes” since its soft launch last Thursday, the Fed stated that it would use Facebook “with the aim of increasing the accessibility and availability of Federal Reserve Board news and educational content.” The central bank also promised posts that would include “press releases, speeches, testimony, reports, educational materials, frequently asked questions, photos, and videos.” However, the Fed left no hint on whether it would weigh in on some of today’s more invigorating Facebook trending stories, such as the leaking of comedian Leslie Jones’ nude photos or Mike Nesmith’s decision to rejoin his Monkees colleagues for a California concert next month. (Hey, it is Facebook, after all!)

The Fed’s Board of Governors also has a social media presence on Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, and LinkedIn. But there’s no word yet on whether Janet Yellen will announce the next Fed vote on rate hikes via Snapchat.
