As federal agencies become more involved in the Web 2.0 world, they are creating “hubs” for their social media connections. Some provide access to specific media links, such as agency bloggers, others provide links to policy and training.

The one that caught my attention was the new Social Media Hub created by Defense to help provide internal-to-Defense education, policy, and the ability for groups in Defense to "register" their social media initiatives in a central location. 

I looked at what other agencies were doing and about half of the major agencies seems to have some sort of landing page for social media.   In some cases, these pages are for agency employees (like Defense), but in other cases they are targeted to their external customers (like EPA).  Here's a starter list, with a focus on the largest agencies.  Please feel free to offer corrections or additions:
