can we say "keep me posted" as "keep me updated" , does it mean to "keep in touch"?
Yes. As you say it means "keep me updated" or "keep me informed".
Nearly, it means "keep my informed". Let me know what is happening.
"Keep in touch", means more like "let's stay in contact which each other" which does not necessarily mean that you should be informed about changes etc.
I've heard that the phrase "keep me posted" is frequently used.
Can it also be used in formal letters and emails?
Reply to above post:
It is a casual phrase, and perfectly acceptable as a friendly request. However, I would not use it in a formal letter or email. In formal setting, I might also name the subject I was interested in. I might say something like: "Please keep me informed about/ concerning .... "
Separate names with a comma.
