By now I’m sure you’re aware of how social media played a role in electing our new president and the online community is a buzz about the future of social media in government and politics. This week on Talk Social News, we explore the future of social media and politics as we talk with Thomas Cook, cofounder of Politics4All. Politics4All is a socially-networked platform that allows citizens, candidates, citizens, and groups to connect and collaborate on every level of the political spectrum.

Take a listen as we discuss how President-Elect Barack Obama won the election using social media, the future of Change.gov and Politics4all.com, and what’s it’s like to be a TechCrunch50 demo company working on a business plan and raising capital. We also talked about the roll of citizen journalism reporting the news and the cool Politics4All t-shirts.
