There are two sites in one at gov.summit net
Intentions of gov.summit.net were never to create another "social networking" site as so many people use. Topic based discussions for the purpose of solutions to local, state and federal government issues is the true purpose. Unlike "wall-based" sites that is a mix of any topic that travels from newest to oldest substitutions, until lost to obscurity, topic based forums provide longevity with searchable and subscribable specific topics. The social side of gov.summit.net allows a comfort factor to assimilate those accustomed to using other popular social sites. As a bonus, however, the social side of this site is a useful tool for those wishing to collaborate with colleagues in efforts to compose or study laws for submission to elected government bodies for consideration to become newly proposed bills.
