MyFlorida.com is 'the official portal of the state of Florida.' It is
also a comprehensive web site containing a plethora of data,
information, current news items, search portals and helpful government
links. The site is divided into five key areas. The first and topmost link at www.myflorida.com is the Visitor link as
denoted by the airplane symbol to the left. Once this button has been
clicked, one has 10 sub-options from which to choose.
The next link is the Floridian, which has many sub-options as well. Sub-options run the gamut between people and places, communities, education, health and medical, just for kids, nature and environment, research and statistics, professional sports, taxes, working in Florida, history and culture, disasters and emergency information, elders and retirement, home and family, law enforcement and crime prevention, licenses, permits & vital records, recreation & sports, consumer information, transportation & travel and Florida military information. The third link is Business and it is all encompassing as is the other links. The fourth link is Government and is well organized. It is broken out by the different governmental branches and has other options as well.
The fifth link is Get Answers link and it has the most thorough Frequently Asked Questions list as has ever been presented on the Internet. It has eighty one pages of questions and answers, with twenty questions on every page, excepting the last. A random list of some of the questions asked include;
1. Can student FCAT scores predict who will succeed in life?
2. Why do I have a charge on my phone bill from my long distance company even when I don't make any long distance calls?
3. Do I have to pay a deposit for Lifeline?
4. How can I discourage bears from destroying my property?
5. What's the difference between a jail and a prison?
So, whatever Florida-based question a user might have, there surely is an answer here. However, in the event that there is an unanswered inquiry, one is free to click on the Ask a Question tab. Because, sometimes, over a thousand questions simply does not cover every situation.
