Can social media make a genuine impact on the democratic process?

While in the UK last week I was involved in a number of discussions about whether social media can make a genuine impact on the democratic process.

This reflects similar conversations I’ve witnessed or been involved with in Australia and in other countries.

This conversation is very important – it helps people involved in the Gov 2.0 space to define, refine and share their ideas and helps people outside the space gain a broader appreciation of the topic.

To encourage further conversation, Delib has set up a global online discussion about social media’s impact on democracy.

You can participate – or watch this discussion at:

It will remain open for commenting until the end of May and visible after this for people to read and think about.
