27 March Since the London mayoral elections, the British political scene has been dominated by online initiatives. Downing Street has launched online petitions, a Twitter feed, Flickr group and YouTube Channel. There are now 42 MPs tweeting - enough for a platform called Tweetminster to have been created to monitor the activity taking place... With this depth of investment in social media, the question is not whether online marketing will play a part in the forthcoming election campaign; the quandary is what role it will play in the success of the victor.

It's all very admirable, setting yourself up on Twitter, building a new fancy blog, creating a Facebook page, skinning a new YouTube channel and creating a MySpace community. However, these aren't quite as effective as they could be if they aren't integrated with each other and the rest of the PR/marcoms strategy.
