We are always looking for fresh ways of sharing information about our activities with the public. And the rise of social media has provided us an array of tools to expand our interactions, and reach new and ever-growing audiences.
But as a government agency, we take a deliberative approach to doing something new. We launched this blog more than three years ago, started tweeting later in 2011, and in 2012, debuted our YouTube channel and moved our extensive photo collection to Flickr.
Today we’re expanding our social media presence by launching the official NRC page on Facebook. We hope you will check it out, like us and visit often—we have lots of interesting things planned. We’d also like to hear from you. Comment on our posts, and send your ideas and questions to us at OPA.RESOURCE@nrc.gov. At least once a month we’ll host an open forum and we welcome your input.
As we said when we launched our blog, social media is not the place for formal communications with us. Visit our website, www.nrc.gov, for further information on interacting with the NRC in an official way. If you have a safety concern, you can contact us here.
We are excited about using this new tool and hope to hear from you on Facebook!

You don’t need Facebook to read the blog. You can just come straight to the blog either directly through WordPress or from the NRC website.
I don’t like Facebook. How can I read you wordpress blog without having to deal with Facebook?
The NRC has had its YouTube Channel since 2011 and have more than 100 videos posted there. Thanks for the suggestion for a future topic.
I can’t wait until the NRC Staff start posting YouTube videos. It would be great to see Staff speaking directly to the public instead of just having to read a volume of non-specific material. These video’s would be very useful to both other NRC personnel and the public at large, since they would increase the public scientific awareness via education.
Here is my first subject request:
Fluid Elastic Instability (FEI) and why it destroyed the 4 new San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant Replacement Steam Generators, causing it’s early decommissioning.
Thank you, we will follow your page on facebook.
We’re sorry to hear that. You can, perhaps, follow us on your personal time or just visit our blog, which is accessible off the NRC’s web page, http://www.nrc.gov
Our company will not allow us to use Facebook, Twitter, etc.
