Facebook Gets Political, Adds 'Town Hall' for Local Government

Facebook is making it easier for people to find and contact their local government officials. The latest version of the app includes a section called Town Hall. Using it, people can seek out local, state, and federal officials based on location. The app makes it easy to subscribe to any or all of the representatives' official Facebook pages, as well as contact them directly through the app. Contact options include messaging and emailing, but not calling. Individual reps' pages are up to that person to maintain, but can contain mailing addresses, phone numbers, direct email addresses, and other details concerning their office and initiatives. The app even shows people which of their friends have subscribed to their own local government officials. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently discussed his intent to make it simpler for people to step up local civil action through Facebook. This Town Hall feature may be a first step in making that happen. Facebook is free to download from the Google Play Store and iTunes App Store.
