MyQ2 is a Queensland government website that takes seriously the power of social media in building governmental interaction with citizens. MyQ2 involves participants choosing, tracking and reporting commitments they make to achieve real change in their everyday lives. The changes involve living healthier, environmentally friendly, and community supportive lives. If achieved, each one, in a small way, contributes to the government’s goals for a state in which citizens are collectively more responsible for social change for better outcomes and more efficiency in public administration. MyQ2 represents a new form of e-government that uses social media to build civic engagement, while doing so in a way specific to the needs of government. Click to read more
