New York, NY (PRWEB) November 28, 2012
One vote every 2 to 4 years just isn’t enough. "We the People" want more influence in how elected officials govern. Unfortunately, many in the US believe that the people's voice has been minimized and discounted by those in power. Government is growing more disconnected from the people while big corporations and highly paid lobbyists are gaining more control. Not anymore…
iGovUs, http://www.igovus.com, is on a mission to cultivate a culture of activism. The company is a niche social network that brings citizens, government, and organizations together within a platform that it believes will shape democracy for the 21st century. iGovUS intends to balance power by amplifying the collective voice of the people through social networking technologies. The company is accepting beta testers.
Core to the iGovUs network is a “Vote Everyday” technology that is featured on the website’s homepage. The technology presents several government related issues to its website visitors. “Vote Everyday” is a simple interface that enables daily voting on issues ranging from Sensational News Stories to Major Issues, Polls, Petitions, Elected Officials in Focus, Bills and legislation, and much more. The Vote Everyday technology also introduces first time visitors to members of the iGovUs social network that share similar voting patterns and views.
“Vote Everyday”, and the social network features and technologies within iGovUs, were developed with ease of use as a primary objective. iGovUs wants everyone, from young to old, internet novice to tech savvy, to find it’s technology accessible. If the company is successful their technology will empower everyone to become an "armchair activist." As a result, iGovUs will be capable of delivering the will of the people to their elected officials in real time.
In summarizing the network’s offering, Brandon Way, CEO, stated “iGovUs opens lines of communication between the people, government officials, political / charitable organizations, and corporations. Our collective citizenry utilizes the network to make an impact at all levels of government. As well, we make government accessible and transparent through elected official profiles, unbiased factual records, voting histories and campaign contributors."
He further defined the network’s technology by saying, “Our core feature sets power movements through information aggregation, voting, polling, petitions, legislation analysis, and fundraising technologies. However, the driving force behind iGovUs is our citizens’ desire to shape democracy by voting everyday.”
Many in the U.S. believe that the relationship between government and the people isn’t working. iGovUs believes their social network is the solution.
