First for Facebook, First for Energy Jun 22, 2011 Office of Senator Dick Lugar On Wednesday, June 22, 2010, we are extremely excited about a first for the Senate and a first for Facebook – the start of a rollout of legislation exclusively via Facebook.
Beginning at 6:30 p.m. (Eastern) tomorrow we’ll host a Practical Energy Plan Live-Chat with Senator Lugar’s Senior Adviser Neil Brown on Facebook.
This is an exciting piece of Dick Lugar’s introduction of his Practical Energy Plan on Facebook. Folks will be able to comment on the live-stream and Neil Brown will answer questions regarding Senator Lugar’s upcoming legislation.
As Hoosiers continue to integrate new media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter into their lives, Senator Lugar is connecting more Hoosiers directly with the legislative process.
In the next week, Senator Lugar will continue to engage his Facebook and Twitter followers in polls, questions, and notes regarding this legislation. In an intimate press conference next week, Senator Lugar will introduce the legislation and live-stream the moment solely to his Facebook friends.
To participate in this ‘first-of-its-kind’ event, you must “like” Senator Lugar’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/senatorlugar and watch for the link for our live stream beginning at 6:30 p.m. Eastern.
