ALP launches social media community in their website

THe Australian Labor Party has just launched a social media community designed to provide ways for party members and the community to interact and provide ideas to the ALP hierarchy.

Launched by Karl Bitar in a blog post, Australian Labor's New Community Space, the system includes a 'ThinkTank' for discussion and voting on issues and 'LaborConnect' a system to support grassroots networking and community formation.

The Liberals also have integrated social media into their website with My Liberals, which supports the expression and support of ideas.

The Greens don't have a similar social networking space on their site as yet, however I expect that it is only a matter of time.
