Michele Ide-Smith distinguishes community-led from partnership-managed approaches to social media enabled participation in local government.


"In the initial meeting I presented what I think of as a ‘governance dichotomy’ which we, as public service providers, should be open to when we consult with the community. By this I mean that we may end up with either a community led or a partnership managed approach to governance, depending on what the community and partnership jointly decide will work best."
