Councillor Davod Harrison

Ups and Downs of Facebook


These days, I am probably better known through Facebook than I am in “real life”. It’s humbling to know that about two and a half thousand people think that the thoughts and activities of a local Councillor are interesting enough to follow regularly.

Occasionally, I post something that is seen by over 40,000 people in a matter of hours (more than the entire population of Totton & Marchwood).

There is no doubt that Facebook is a brilliant way to communicate with a lot of people very quickly. I am often told by people that they are a lot better informed about local things and politics as a result of following this page.

I do enjoy, sharing things, whether it is local news or my opinions. Occasionally, the threads can display a sharp difference of opinion, but I don’t mind that, providing things stay reasonably respectful.

I have a website and I also tweet. I like to think that my use of social media has encouraged other Councillors to follow suit. I am unsure where my next social media foray will take me…. I am open to suggestions!
