Tories use social media 'as a gateway to campaigning', says Pickles - http://www.politicshome.com/track_l...
Not sure what the phrase gateway to campaigning means but Pickles argues that rather than mobilising activists, Facebook and Twitter are all about talking to voters - but how do they get them to follow the party is the question - Darren Lilleker

Labour called upon to connect to communities - Labourspace - http://communication.labourspace.com/view_ca...
Interesting that the Conservatives have created this but it is only a campaign buried within LabourSpace, the Obama tactics seem to have captured the imagination. - Darren Lilleker

Mark Pack on how British parties are responding to the social media successes of Obama? - http://www.markpack.org.uk/how-are...
I've recently answered a few questions about political parties and their use of social media, sent to me by Vincent Bailey, a student at Cardiff University completing a masters degree in Political Communication. He is looking at the use of new media - Darren Lilleker

With poll numbers sagging and deadlines under threat, Obama needs health-care help badly. Perhaps that\'s why the President is turning to Twitter - Darren Lilleker

Facebook Report Shows The Path To A Popular Page - http://www.insidefacebook.com/2009...
Whether it’s a celebrity, band, television show or a major brand, the page must be engaging. There must be something there to make a person want to share that page in his or her Facebook news feed. And if the page is compelling enough, it won’t just appeal to one person or demographic, but will catch the eye of a few different people that share you or your brand as a common interest. Not exactly rocket science, more re-inventing the wheel - Darren Lilleker

Mark Pack offeres wise words on - well its obvious from the title!! - Darren Lilleker

QUENTIN LETTS: the House of cheats and nodding oil derricks just got its perfect Speaker - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate...
I'm guessing Letts doesn't like Bercow, though if just a small part of what he says is accurate it seems he is the most utterly divisive candidate and, given his record, unlikely to be a reformer that will regain public trust - Darren Lilleker

Are twitter users broadcasting narcissists? - http://chronicle.com/wiredca...

English Democrat is new Mayor of Doncaster - http://www.independent.co.uk/news...
There is a context to this that goes beyond expenses and major parties being unpopular, however for the final run-off to be between an English Democrat and an Independent shows that it was not just the Labour mayor (who did not stand again) that was personally unpopular but there was a wider backlash. - Darren Lilleker

Vote 09: The first Web 2.0 elections? - http://www.labourlist.org/vote_09...
Well for some maybe, a fascinating account though from the candidate's perspective - Darren Lilleker

Battered Darling gets set to quit Treasury - http://news.scotsman.com/latestn...
For detail and breadth you can't beat The Scotsman (the newspaper that is not the PM). Also they mention the issue that MPs seem to be avoiding at all costs, as secretary of the Scottish Labour Party described it: the "reprehensible conduct" of flipping homes. That is what the Chancellor really should be sacked over, not a £700 or so mistake - Darren Lilleker

Let's see if Britain's got political talent-Frank Skinner - http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol...
an insightful article that makes interesting points in the way only someone who has an interest in politics but no involvement can. Especially like the bit about uninformed voting and the experiment; wonder if this is going to be mirrored on Thursday? - Darren Lilleker

Why UK parties copying Obama still looks like dad dancing - http://www.the-vibe.co.uk/2009...
A little over the top on what Obama achieved but some interesting comments all the same - Darren Lilleker

Some important tips on getting blogging fight and understanding your audience - http://www.socialnetworkingtodayblog.com/...
Could the blog be the most powerful marketing research tool of all time? Because if the answer to this question is yes, then surely it follows that... - Darren Lilleker

How to prevent falling victim to cybersquatting - http://voices.washingtonpost.com/securit...
Though the rule of thumb tends to be unless you know it definitely is a 'famous person' it probably is not, this will probably be seen as a good idea for some. The downside is it clutters up SNS with cobwebs (profiles that are just there not even gathering flies) - Darren Lilleker

While I disagree with the message, surely the slogan "Abort Obama and not the Unborn" can in no way be perceived as a threat or an indication of belonging to a hate group. Apparently it can, mistakenly (maybe), and showing it can result in not jsut confiscation but secret services doing a walk through your house. Is this over zealous lay enforcement or a sign that Obama really likes to control the message? - Darren Lilleker

Angry Veteran Labour Member Quits Party - http://news.sky.com/skynews...
Alice Mahon is no radical leftie, what she represents is the moderate social left which Blair left behind but had no alternative and Brown has done little to win back. At times Brown appeared to be the more leftist anchor within the Blair cabinet (he once mentioned socialists and wrote a biography of James Maxton), one wonders how Labour's vote will hold up in the heartlands at a time when many must feel there is a lack of representation for those outside marginal semi-affluent areas. The danger, as often mentioned, is that the BNP will benefit with their blend of nationalism and socailism which appeals to prejudices and blanket preferences - Darren Lilleker

Et Tu Brute - Labourlist calls for editor's sacking - http://www.labourlist.org/bitchy_...
Though I suppose at least it shows editorial independence - Darren Lilleker
Darren Lilleker
The article claims that the bloggers claimed a scalp, actually it all circulated around a battle of egos between Derek Draper and Paul Staines and resulted from Staines' use of his blog to promote the Conservative party and its increased popularity as Brown slumped in the polls. Perhaps what all this bears evidence to is that the Internet empowers, but that power may not be spread evenly or in the right hands. If Staines and Draper represent the new influentials in the new media age it says very little positive about the future of democratic policies. - Darren Lilleker
