(Lori Piotrowski) – A faithful reader has let us know just how hip our federal government is becoming these days. (Thanks, Tony!)
Those of you who follow bills as they are written, passed through committees, amended, brought to the floor, and so on, know that these are all visible online. Including who is lobbying for and against, and who is being paid by lobbying groups and how much for their vote.
But how many of you have “liked” Nevada on its Congressional Facebook page? Not many from the looks of it. Okay, the tally’s gone up one more since I clicked the button. That brings the total to a whopping 244 people.
A Washington techie created 50 Facebook pages, one for each state. Each Facebook page posts articles from Roll Call (the Congressional newspaper) as well as photos of the state’s representatives and senators.
This is a good way to keep tabs on Amodei, Berkley, Heck, Heller, and even Reid. Become politically active online by “liking” articles, reposting them, or commenting on the news.
When I look at all the political postings on my own page, I’d guess that the lack of activity here is that facebookers haven’t yet found Nevada’s page. Once they do, however, I’m betting that in January, it could be blazing hot!
