In the recent months You2Gov has gone from just a simple startup social networking company to one of the fastest growing political websites in the United States. We have been consistently working to surpass our own achievements, as evidenced by PC Magazine picking You2Gov to be one of the top 20 political web sites on it’s list for 2008. We have just announced a major technology rollout, the contact Congress and White House database and tool kits.
In the process of adding such major enhancements to the site, we are also continually updating the content, and adding and adjusting things, in an effort to provide the best experience for all the You2Gov users. So you may experience changes in look and feel to the site, as well as find new content often. We ask that if you find any problems, please let us know, and we like hearing your input and so if you have suggestions send us an email.
Below is the text of the press release that went today on the newswires.
Thank you all for continuing to help make us a success and we look forward to even more announcements and additions in the coming weeks and months.
YOU2GOV ANNOUNCES MAJOR TECHNOLOGY ROLLOUT
Whether it’s McCain or Obama You2Gov Offers Instant Communications to Congress
Los Angeles, CA — You2Gov, the pioneering social networking web site, today announced major additions to its technology that allows users to directly contact their Members of Congress. You2Gov’s technology allows users to contact elected officials in a rapid, secure and private manner that is typically only available to the large corporations, trade groups, unions and their lobbyists in Washington, D.C.
Registered You2Gov users can now utilize the free, customized database that includes contact information for all Members of the United States Congress, both House of Representatives and Senate, along with an easy-to-use tool kit at http://www.you2gov.org/index.php/Elected-Officials.
By creating the “Armchair Lobbyist” You2Gov brings to regular Americans the same power of “instant communication” with lawmakers that billion dollar corporations, trade groups, and big unions enjoy. Whether it is a mobile phone or a desktop, Macintosh or PC laptop, You2Gov’s one-touch features enable users to email, or make live telephone calls via Skype& Jaxtr –directly from their computer screen or PDA. You2Gov provides a wide variety of research tools and up-to-the minute news updates to help Americans remain well-informed about the issues they care about.
You2Gov CEO Alan W. Silberberg stated, “I could not be more excited with the launch of this unique and extremely needed tool kit that is arriving at a timely period in history. The current Economic crisis and the bailout that the House, Senate and President voted for are all yet one more reason why everyday Americans need these tools to be able to exhibit effective oversight of our Government. We have been working intensely since our recent launch to make our tool kit even stronger. The addition of our searchable, customized Congressional database that allows instant contact with Members of Congress, on both the House and Senate, is yet one more powerful tool that You2Gov is making available to its users, free of charge. You2Gov is leading the drive to turn U.S. Politics and Government into something where accountability exists, and we do so through transparent action and research.”
