So the No. 10 website has been re-vamped and social media’d up to the hilt with Flickr, YouTube, Twitter and all the other mainstream social media apps you would expect. However, what does this mean? What does it give to us that we didn’t already have?
Within about an hour of me following No.10 on Twitter, they reciprocated and this got me thinking about how great this could be. There’s already been posts asking for opinions and ideas about the website and these seem to have created discussion about the uses and potential of the new site.
I will be listening and watching to see whether this new social media move results in meaningful discussion in a public forum. However, part of me has to think that it’s just another way of getting the No.10 releases and statements, without them actually having to take part in a conversation.
