The age of social media has changed many things about how we communicate and interact online. Politicians have had to follow suit. This means, in addition to everything else, MPs and their staff have to be online content creators, curators and, more importantly, they need to be engaged in a dialog.
I spoke with MP Ted Hsu in May. We had a fascinating chat about the design decisions behind his digital ecosystem and the challenges he’s identified in staying current and interesting to an online audience.
Our chat was, by the way, two months before Mr. Hsu announced that this, his first term as an MP, would also be his last. The demands are too hard on a young family.
On this edition of the Digital Public Affairs podcast, excerpts from a conversation with Ted Hsu on considerations for digital in an MP’s communications ecosystem.
