After nine months of negotiations, the General Services Administration signed agreements with four video-sharing and social networking sites: Flickr, Vimeo, blip.tv and YouTube. GSA also is negotiating with the social networking sites Facebook and MySpace. 'We found when we reviewed standard service agreements that they were not a good enough fit for the [requirements] of the federal government,' said Michael Ettner, GSA general counsel."
