This is a comprehensive global directory of online groups about the use of technology for open government, public participation, community building and democracy. Please recommend "two-way" places with real life to them.

E-Democracy.org directly hosts some key spaces. This includes the 2200+ member Open Government and Civic Technology Facebook Group for general open government/transparency/participation discussion, the Digital Inclusion Network, and Locals Online for hosts of local online forums/blogs/social networking groups.

As part of our educational mission, we monitor many of the online spaces below and forward notable content via Democracies Online Newswire and @democracy on Twitter.

A new listing of Facebook Groups and LinkedIn Groups is below.

Many more to add ...


There are dozens of online groups, from those on mailing lists and Google Groups to group blogs and Twitter hashtag communities, connecting people interested in the use of technology for government transparency, public participation, and community building.

At the national/global level there will never be one unified place people exchange knowledge on these topics as people and interests specialize. However at the local or state level, online spaces tend to be more unified but almost impossible to find for new people wanting to get involved. So this is our place to start a simple directory of those local/state online groups that are emerging.
