Reaching Hispanics Through Mobile - GobiernoUSA.gov's Experience

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Saturday 12th March, 2011

11:45am to 12:00pm (CST)

Hispanics are significantly more likely than non-Hispanic whites to use their phones to engage with their peers by accessing the Internet, sharing pictures and videos, sending messages, and using social networking sites. As the Hispanic population grows within the United States, these behaviors present new opportunities for the government to interact with people. Laura Godfrey's presentation will explain how GobiernoUSA.gov is reaching out to mobile-enabled Hispanics by building a mobile friendly version of the site.
