I am pleased to announce the launch of sociopolitical.org, what I believe is the Internet’s most complete and easily accessible data set of the social media accounts of elected members of the U.S. Congress.
Sociopolitical.org allows the public to search by representative name or by state, and receive hyperlinks to representatives’ official accounts. The site contains a dynamic map and search features. In addition, we have created a social media index score which rates representatives based on the number of social media websites utilized.
We hope to obtain funding to expand the project to include the ability for users to type in their home address and have a message formatted for Twitter or Facebook automatically tagging the users’ representatives.
Please visit sociopolitical.org and provide comments/feedback on my blog at https://adam.commons.gc.cuny.edu.
