Government Accountability Board launches Facebook page

MADISON -- The Government Accountability Board launched its first Facebook page on Wednesday, April 25th. The page was created to give voters another way to keep up with news about elections and government ethics in Wisconsin.

People don’t have to be Facebook members to view the G.A.B.’s page, but members can “like” the G.A.B. in order to receive updates in their news feed when there are new posts. Members can also send the G.A.B. staff a private message through the Facebook page.

In a news release issued Wednesday afternoon, Kevin Kennedy, director of the GAB said, “Our Facebook page is a quick and convenient way for the public to see what’s new and get basic information about important events like upcoming elections.”

The Facebook page is the G.A.B.’s first step into social media, and additional plans are being developed to expand the use of social media and digital connectivity, such as Twitter and an election app.
