This week, the DNCC launched its new Facebook group, MySpace profile and Twitter account – three new ways for you to interact with the DNCC team.
Facebook is a social networking website where users can interact with their friends, join groups and contribute to causes. We’re really excited about the Facebook group because Democrats from around country now have the opportunity to meet each other, organize events in Denver and all around the U.S. during Convention week (August 25-28, 2008) and Democrats on Facebook can stay in touch post-Convention to work together to elect a Democrat as the next President of the United States.
Those enrolled in the Facebook group can interact with DNCC staff and learn more about the Convention. Come on by the DNCC Facebook group, join up, contribute to the conversation and tell your friends about it.
Facebook is open to everyone and it’s free. Click here to join the DNCC group.
Like Facebook, MySpace is a social network that is, as they say, “a place for friends.” To add the Democratic National Convention as one of your friends and meet people similarly interested in the Democratic National Convention, click here.
Twitter is a text messaging service. Think of it like an electronic messaging board on your cell phone for you, your friends and organizations like the DNCC. The DNCC will send text messages to our group with up to the minute information about the Convention. When we launch a new program, need community participation or have something important to say, we’ll send out a short message.
To join the DNCC Twitter group, text JOIN to 40404. Follow the instructions and then text FOLLOW DEMCONVENTION to 40404.
Twitter is free, but standard text message rates apply. Check with your mobile carrier before signing up.
As we get closer to the Convention, we’ll launch more social networking tools, so we can have a conversation about the Convention.
Last month, the DNCC announced its Rocky Mountain West photo gallery. We’re looking for people from around the Rocky Mountain West to submit photos that show off the people and places that make their towns home. You can find out more about the photo gallery and how to submit your photos by clicking here.
