New Moneyspeak application
Directgov has just launched a new application called Moneyspeak, which can be shared via social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace. It’s downloadable, embeddable and shareable.
The Moneyspeak application has been developed under the theme of Real Help and is designed to make sense of the often confusing and alarming economic terms everyone is hearing at the moment.
The application has two main functions. Firstly, a search bar can be used to enter a financial word or phrase, such as quantitative easing or fiscal stimulus, which then picks up on relevant references from across the web.
Secondly, it identifies information relating to the chosen search term by linking to the relevant Directgov pages.
It’s Directgov’s first steps into embeddable tools and feedback will be monitored for our next steps into this field.
Give it a try at http://www.direct.gov.uk/moneyspeak.
