From the stables to the tracks, people across the United States are talking about this year’s Triple Crown. The three biggest thoroughbred horse races in the nation — the Kentucky Derby; the Preakness Stakes; and the Belmont Stakes — take place in the coming weeks. It has been 34 years since a horse has won all three and taken the U.S. Triple Crown.

Social Security has a horse in the race, so to speak. Social Security offers its own “Triple Crown” of social media at www.socialsecurity.gov.

Facebook is a great place to stay in the know when it comes to useful information about Social Security. “Like” Social Security at www.facebook.com/socialsecurity.

Twitter is another place to get regular updates in short bursts. Social Security said it promises to be brief as it keeps citizens up to date in 140-characters or less. Select “Follow” at www.twitter.com/socialsecurity.

The third part to the social media Triple Crown is its YouTube page, where you can find everything from informative webinars to short messages from Social Security. You can view fun public service announcements starring George Takei, Don Francisco, Chubby Checker and the reunited cast of The Patty Duke Show. You can even watch Patty Duke apply online for retirement benefits! Get some useful information at www.youtube.com/socialsecurityonline.
