Facebook Adds “Town Hall” Feature

Tech Crunch reports Facebook has added a feature that allows users to find and follow as well as contact their government representatives.

The new Facebook feature can be found under the Apps section of the Facebook mobile app. You just click Town Hall, use your location or type your address,and Facebook populates a list of your local, state, and federal officials, all the way up to the President.

The only drawback to this feature is the Contact button feature. Under this feature when you click it, depending on the person, that button may allow you to email the representative, Facebook message them, or just visit their Facebook page. Now that this feature is available this may cause the representatives to take a more uniformed approach and make the button perform the same action on all accounts.
