Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 29, 2009
The Obama campaign utilized the most modern and sophisticated technologies available as part of their platform. From myBarackObama to the Obama YouTube channel and Twitter feeds, the campaign utilized these tools to connect directly with citizens. As the 44th Administration enters the White House, the Obama staff have been complaining that the technology available in the White House is stuck in the dark ages ("Staff Finds White House in Technological Dark Ages" Washington Post, 1/22/09).
Many government employees have decided to move past the dark ages and join GovLoop.com, the premier social network for government employees, where government prospers in the golden age.
Launched in June 2008, the network has over 5,000 members from federal, state, and local government. Their members range from CIOs and Deputy Administrators to brilliant mid-level and entry-level staff all across the United States and the globe.
In only a few months, their members have written over 600 blogs, launched 450 discussions, posted over 200 events, and shared 1000+ photos and over 100 videos.
Together they connect and collaborate on ways to improve government from the inside. Recent discussions and blogs have addressed topics such as Gov 2.0, Crowdsourcing, Participatory Budgeting, and Creating New Government Leaders.
As Meghan Harvey, a GovLoop member, recently wrote in her post titled, "How GovLoop Helps Restore Faith & Inspiration to the People", "If the people at the heart of government are this dedicated, passionate and smart, then how can the public NOT have faith in the direction of our country? (The Administration should) show the public the regular people on GovLoop who are making a difference each and every day."
As such, GovLoop welcomes all new Obama staff and all government employees to join the conversation at GovLoop.com, the premier social network for government employees, where government prospers in the golden age.
