Social Media: Will Facebook Be an Arena for the Tax Reform Fight?

by michaelpolzella

Facebook recently unveiled a “Town Hall” feature allowing users to call, message, email and connect with their representatives directly from the social media platform. This move signals the rapidly expanding role that Facebook plays in the political discussion – having served as a launching pad for movements like Pantsuit Nation, but also coming under fire for not quelling the “fake news” some say swayed the election.

As we prepare for the next major legislative battle – tax reform – will this virtual town hall that gives social media users a direct line to their lawmakers like never before significantly influence this policy debate?
