The Cabinet Office are launching a review into how social media can improve public engagement and empowerment:
Minister for the Cabinet Office Hilary Armstrong wants Government to harness the phenomenon of internet advice sharing sites and empower people with information that could help improve their lives.
There’s no point me writing much about this, as David Wilcox has already done so superbly:
On reflection, what is just as interesting is that Ministers and Civil Servants are becoming aware that presence on the Net is no longer a matter of creating – and controlling – your own web space. It is a matter of going to the places where people already are, and so ending up in many places at the same time.
I urge you to read David’s post in full.
