How Facebook has changed the way we govern
From The Washington Post:
Facebook is celebrating its 10th anniversary Tuesday, marking a decade of status updates, wall posts and avoiding talking about your relationships by just letting everyone know “it’s complicated.” Since 2004, the site has seen over 200 billion friend connections, been home to more than 400 billion shared photos and now averages more than 6 billion likes per day.
There’s no doubt Facebook has changed the way we communicate with each other. What can often be lost, however, is that it’s also changed how we communicate with institutions, brands and, perhaps most importantly here in Washington, with our elected officials.
Got a question for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.)? Ask her on Facebook, where she writes her own updates. Curious how Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) voted today? Go to Facebook. Want to offer your ideas for your country’s new constitution? If you’re Icelandic, you could have gone to Facebook.
