Continuing its push to social media and web 2.o, the USCG has just launched a new blog to accompany their already impressive arsenal of online outlets, The Coast Guard Compass. The idea behind the Coast Guard Compass is that it will not just be about the Coast Guard, but rather about the men and women who make the Coast Guard the service it is today, and the missions they do.
With 100,000 enlisted, reservist, civilian and auxiliary men and woman serving, the Coast Guard Compass fills a much needed gap in the online community that the USCG has established and we will be sure to follow along as it progresses.
Also of note, the USCG has just launched another blog called the Coast Guard Marine Safety blog. This new blog is a video series that describes today’s global marine transportation challenges and the role Coast Guard, recreational boaters, and professional mariners have to protect maritime commerce, the marine environment, and safety of life at sea.
