Do the expressions below have the same meaning?

>To get with the times

>To keep up with the times

If not, when should I use each of them?

Would you please give me some examples?

Thank you.

@paok1970,
"To get with the times" means to come up to date from a previous state of outdatedness,

"To keep up with the times" means to continuously maintain a state of up to datedness.

@paok1970,
Close to identical meaning. "To keep up with the times" might imply someone is not keeping up with things as well as they should. It might not mean that at all. Context and tone of voice are important.

@paok1970,
Same meaning, but "get with the times"is what we call short. That means it is almost impolite, but not quite.
