Here at the FCC over the last year, you may have noticed new features and functionality the FCC has been rolling out to improve and modernize its Web presence. One quiet and continuing goal has been to improve the user experience by creating simple pages with easy-to-remember URLs where you can reliably find what you are looking for. This is a work in progress and far from complete, but we wanted to highlight a few such hubs of information that are worth looking into and keeping an eye on. Each new release will continue to mature through iterations, so join the discussion by letting us know your ideas. There's much more to come.

  • At FCC.gov/blog, you can follow the agency's work as well as learn more about the day-to-day activity that drives it.
  • At FCC.gov/calendar, you can keep track of upcoming public events and learn more information on how to attend as well as engage online.
  • At FCC.gov/connect, you can easily access the ever-growing social media presence of the agency, with links to the FCC pages on Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, Twitter, and more.
  • At FCC.gov/data, you can find links to the large amount of public data available at FCC.gov, broken down by data type as well as by office or bureau.
  • At FCC.gov/live, you can watch public events streamed live over the internet as well as browse the archives to watch previous events in full.
  • At FCC.gov/onlinetutorials, you can watch screencasts explaining how to use and interact with different parts of FCC.gov.
  • At FCC.gov/openmeetings, you can find relevant information, documents, and video for Open Commission Meetings, both before, and afterwards as more information is released.
  • At FCC.gov/rss, you can find the continuously growing list of RSS and XML feeds which allow you to subscribe to updates to any number of different areas.
  • At FCC.gov/workshops, you can find relevant information, documents, and video for the public events hosted by the FCC.
