I really enjoyed Matt Crozier's review of Web 2.0 afficianado Oz PM self styled "KRudd", as I enjoy reading most of the "Bang the Table" crew's social media postings. Overall positive, but Matt Crozier did provide a critique of the PM's blog being "moderated."
It's easy to criticise the "moderation" of Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's blog, which sees a delay in comments being posted, rather than in "real time".
However some federal government authorities with public social media interfaces have to do a daily cleanup.
Why? Not necessarily censoring comments critical of the PM's actions and authority.
No - rather it's the clean up of the daily "porn spamming" contingent - which so many of us involved in social media are only too well aware every day.
So maybe PM KRudd's blog could be done better - but imagine what it would be like if there wasn't moderation ? Now that's a worry.
