Lee Rainie, director of Internet, Science and Technology research at the Pew Research Center, presented the Center’s latest findings about the use of digital technology and its future at the Federal Reserve Board’s Editors and Designers conference in Philadelphia on October 6, 2016. During the keynote he discussed the impact of social media, collaboration, and future trends in technology with a special focus on the issues tied to security and reputational risk that face the Federal Reserve System. He described how the Center’s research can help communicators:

-Disseminate their messages across multiple digital and traditional media channels
-Engage their audience and encourage amateur evangelism
-Assess the impact of their outreach and observe challenges to their material
-Think like long a long-tail organization that also has real-time immediacy
