Washington, DC- FreedomWorks is proud to announce that its new social networking platform, FreedomConnector, passed over 100,000 active members last night. FreedomConnector is a revolutionary social networking platform intended to unite grassroots activists nationwide who share the values of limited government, fiscal responsibility, and individual liberty.
“For too long online activism has been dominated by the political Left,” said Matt Kibbe, President of FreedomWorks. “FreedomConnector is changing that dynamic by giving freedom-loving activists the tools to fight back.”
FreedomConnector is a hub for Tea Partiers to communicate with each other, taking existing connections between people dispersed throughout multiple social networking sites and opening one platform for grassroots collaboration. FreedomConnector also pinpoints others in your area using geo-location technology, allowing grassroots activists to find others, create groups and host events right in their own community.
“Since 1984, FreedomWorks has been dedicated to the belief that government goes to those who show up,” commented Matt Kibbe, President of FreedomWorks. “Our aim is to support grassroots activists in all 50 states who are sick of business as usual in Washington, and will work to advance the principles of lower taxes, less government, and more freedom. FreedomConnector is a game-changing tool that empowers local activists to create their own ground game that will win elections and transform conservative ideas into lasting political change.”
FreedomConnector is constantly making improvements to the site that will maximize its effectiveness, and improve the user experience. The latest feature on the site allows members to invite all of their like-minded Facebook friends to join them on FreedomConnector to participate in planning and attending local Tea Party events. By inviting their entire Facebook network, users can conveniently keep their existing groups of friends, while expanding their local community with like-minded individuals that they didn’t even know existed.
As a service center, FreedomWorks seeks to maximize—not control—the efforts of the Tea Party movement, 9/12 groups, and other grassroots activists nationwide committed to limited government principles. Kibbe added, “The wave of limited-government conservatives who have signed onto FreedomConnector in the past few months is further proof that the Tea Party movement is a strong, sustaining movement that is not going away. This is just the beginning for us.”
