Why use #tags?

The benefits of the collaborative use of systematically defined hashtags are described here: Community based climate collaboration via #tags and wikis.

Specifically for Policy Maker, these are some of the potential benefits.

Your work can become much more effective and efficient once you start providing content in a systematized manner: your constituency will be grateful that there will finally be a coherent picture of what the public sector is doing, for whom, and under what conditions.

The effcient spending of public or “club” moneys is one of your duties. By improving the value for money in your services, means can be reallocated to priority causes, or taxes can be reduced. Your investment in systematized content commons will spur substantial social savings.

Why read #tagged content?

Be more aware of the total support service offer that is in place already, before taking yet another fragmenting initiative.

Prior to taking a policy initiative, use the relevant #isicWW, #cofogWW or #WWlgu tags to discover voices and opinions, and to invite comments on your plans.

Use article by article representations of proposed acts and regulations to invite comments and propositions from your constituency.

See for example: Art. 9 - Farmers' rights in the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture.

Why contribute #tagged content?

Yes, you are a key provider of content that is in the public domain. The sooner you learn how to deploy these social media techniques in your work, the better for your constituency.
