Remember when a YouTube channel was a novelty? Now it's a necessity. And in the Obama Administration, it seems regulators and legislators alike are realizing this. Orders from above? The latest in Washington to join the party are Freddie Mac and the Dept. of Homeland Security. From the Chicago Sun-Times:
Mortgage giant Freddie Mac is using YouTube.com to educate homeowners at risk of foreclosure on how they can help reduce the stress and time it takes to get a mortgage modification under President Obama's Making Home Affordable program or Freddie Mac's other workout programs.

And the Los Angeles Times has the story on Homeland Security:
The DHS is getting on the social media wagon, with the launch of a YouTube channel and a revamp of its website.

“Social media plays an increasingly large role in our engagement with the public, especially in the event of an incident or disaster,” said DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano. “These new tools will facilitate an open dialogue about the department’s security efforts across the nation and around the world.”
