Did you know you can follow your elected representatives on Facebook? It’s a feature they launched in March of this year. Friends, you know this is more important now than it’s ever been.
To find who your reps are, go to “Town Hall” towards the bottom of the left hand toolbar on your Facebook home page (or click here). Then they’ll have you put in your address to find your representatives. Once you do that, here are the things you can do:
- Follow your representatives. The nice thing about this is that you can “Follow” people without “Liking” them. Let’s just say, for example, totally random example now that I want to follow my country’s president but don’t want to show up on his “Likes” list. For that, I would only click “Follow” and could see their posts and comment on their posts when I want to.
- Turn on your Constituent Badge. If you turn this on, your representatives can see your address (no one else can) and you’ll get a badge next to your name when you comment on their posts so they know that they are actually your representative and not just general public.
- Interact with them. The squeaky wheel gets the grease, and your representatives don’t know what you care about unless you tell them. If you think they are doing a great job and you agree completely with them, let them know! If you completely disagree with them and all of their decisions, let them know that too (and let them know what you do care about).
