Will Muskoka politicians leverage Internet tools too?

Hello from Muskoka Community Network:

With Web 2.0 tools such as Blogs, RSS feeds and Facebook accounts available to Federal, Provincial, Territorial, Municipal, and local politicians, it will be interesting to see if local politicians add these new tools to their communication strategies.

In the U.S., candidates for the presidential election are using the latest Internet tools to reach new audiences using Web 2.0 technology.

ABC News and Facebook have teamed up to create a new tool that will provide news coverage on the campaign directly to Facebook users.

This communication medium is very powerful because it delivers specific news to Facebook users who want to keep informed about the campaign. The Facebook subscribers are exposed to ABC's content each time they login to their FaceBook account.

Obviously this is good for ABC, and keeps Facebook subscribers informed. Candidates will certainly need to be working very hard to add their own content and information to Facebook. If the candidates don't work the media through Facebook they will be at a disadvantage compared to candidates who do.
