The Australian Labor Party now has an online community

The ALP has a ‘new community’ space. There is a social networking community called ‘Labor Connect’– which they say is like Facebook- and a message board function called ‘Think Tank’. Just looking at the Labor Connect sign up page did not indicate any terms and conditions, but I guess they must either not vet memberships or they do not require you to indicate any support for the ALP as John Howard has been registered and made a comment.

There are so many research possibilities, but also I wonder about the political calculations that went into this decision by the ALP. What would The Australian Democrats say?
