Icelandic politics on Facebook
I have been watching closely how Obama is embracing the Government 2.0 ideas and effectively engaging with people through the medium of the web.
So with nothing better to do, I decided to do a quick survey on how the Icelandic political parties are using Facebook.
174 members, 2 discussion topics and 11 wall posts
I could not find an official group but the youngsters have 12 fans and a couple of photos from last October

Again, no official group but the local branch in Akureyri launched a group yesterday and have 21 members, 2 discussion topics and 15 photos.
