FLORIDA — Facebook and its partner Twitter are bringing their own tools to Florida’s state and local government offices and public buildings, and using them to connect people with their families.
“It’s really important to us that our government, our businesses and our communities stay connected to one another,” said John Wiese, Facebook’s senior vice president of global government relations.
The new tools were launched Friday by Florida’s Office of Administration and Finance, the state’s public safety agency.
Facebook and the Office of Government Services announced their partnership last month, and Facebook and Florida are now the only two major U.S. government agencies using the technology.
The partnerships also include the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the Florida Sheriffs Office, the State of Florida Department and the Florida Environmental Protection Agency.
“We’re proud to partner with the Florida Legislature and the state to deliver on this important mission of helping Floridians to better connect with one another and stay connected with our neighbors,” said Florida Gov.
The state also announced that it would be the first to implement the new tool through an online form.
“These tools are an important part of our work, and we’re glad to see them making their way to our office,” Scott said in a statement.
“They make it easy for Floridans to reach out to family, friends and co-workers and they allow people to interact and interact with one of the most important parts of life: family.”
“The ability to connect with family, work, or community is one of our most important responsibilities, and it’s a tool we’re excited to share with the public,” Wieses said.
“And we’re also excited that these tools are coming to the Florida Statehouse for the first time.
We’re thrilled to help Florida build its way forward to make our state the nation’s most open and transparent.”
The tool lets users sign up for Facebook, sign in with their state government, and get a list of local offices where people can meet with their family and friends.
It also includes a list for local organizations that want to help with their work, including county offices, school districts, libraries, and public libraries.
Facebook said that the tool is free for the state.
“This is just one of many things that we’re looking forward to sharing with our community,” Wyses said in the statement.
The office is using the new tools to help people “connect with one family member,” Wie said.
Facebook already has partnerships with the state and county governments in other states.
For example, the social media platform partnered with the Palm Beach County Department of Health in 2017 to offer free health screenings and screenings to the general public.
The partnership also includes health care providers and their patients.
The Office of Health Services partnered with Facebook in 2017 with a program that allowed people to connect directly with a healthcare provider and get information on health conditions.
Facebook is also working with other state and municipal agencies.
In 2017, Facebook and Wies, who is also the chief technology officer of the company, launched the U.K.-based social media tool Connect to Government.
Facebook also launched its new Connect to People app last month.
The app includes a map showing the nearest state and city government offices, with more than 500 agencies in more than 50 countries.
Wies said in an interview that the U
