The Internet Association Revamps Website, Seeks More Reader Input

Lobbying group and trade association The Internet Association, which counts Facebook among its members, launched a revamped website aimed at allowing readers to comment on proposed legislation related to the industry.

The Internet Association Digital Director Nika Nour told Mashable the website’s “Leave Your Mark” section will host bills, declarations, and related documents for readers to view and comment on, including the ability to contribute their own line edits, with the goal of providing the bills’ authors or other legislators with feedback. Nour told Mashable:

We want this to be a two-way conversation. It needs to be a dialog.

The Internet Association’s site will also offer “legislative cheat sheets” on the most important topics in its Policies section, and Nour told Mashable:

Our goal here is to find ways to explain the issues to the user community in bite-sized pieces so that it’s easy to understand, but also to be a good source for congressional staffers to get the source of information for the issues, and take it back to their bosses in an easy-to-digest way.
