As well as this blog, GDS has a small selection of accounts on various social media networks and other web services, and we thought it would be useful to publish a list of them here.

First of all: Twitter. We run two main accounts: @gdsteam which speaks for our team, and @GOVUK which answers enquiries related to the GOV.UK website. We also run the @UKGovDigiJobs account.

YouTube is where we currently publish all our videos.

We have a Flickr account for photos and screenshots of services. This is our photo archive, a useful place to store images in high resolution. We often turn to it when we're looking for images to use in our presentations.

We also post pictures on our Instagram account, and we have a Pinterest account, too.

We've got a company page on LinkedIn.

And that's pretty much it. We're not on Facebook, and we don't create profiles on new sites without some careful thought first.

There's more detail about all of these channels, along with our guidelines for using them, in the Social Media Playbook.

Don't forget to sign up for email alerts.

    I like the fact that you are not on Facebook, i think it's an apt decision. Still wonder though what led to the decision to specifically not be there. Something other non profit and businesses can learn from....
