The State Department has international posts

The State Department has international posts...and something called "Virtual Presence Posts." The program helps the Department work with key cities, regions, and countries without an American embassy or consulate building. The state department website says that most of their Virtual Presence Posts have their own online sites. That way, diplomats have a choice of travel, public outreach programs, media events, or online webchats to create a "virtual" presence to connect with local populations.

The State Department Office of eDiplomacy

The State Department Office of eDiplomacy is working to launch an internal networking site, tentatively called "StateBook", allowing employees to read open messages to and for each other. Office Director Richard Boly says the site will make it easy for State Department employees to identify other people's expertise - where they've worked before - helping them collaborate in a mobile workforce. StateBook is the latest program marking a change from a post-Cold War secrecy to a need to share information internally.
