Councils can Listen... 

Citizenscape is the tool to help you cut through the complexity and confusion of social media.

It will help you harness the overwhelming potential of the web by giving you the building blocks you need to create a permanent civic webspace.

Your citizens are already talking online, they're just not talking to you. Citizenscape gives you the tools you need to join the conversation and all you have to do right now is listen.

This page listens to some of the blogs and twitter feeds that we find interesting.  We have asked permission from the content creators but they are not endorsing the product and we don't moderate or change any of the content here.

This means we can be sure that we know what they are thinking - we are really listening.
