Begich Revamps Official Senate Website
Site designed for easier navigation, social networking, latest information for Alaskans
Continuing to focus on new and interesting ways to keep in touch with Alaskans, U.S. Sen. Mark Begich today announced the launch of his newly-revised and revamped website. Begich’s official Senate site, www.begich.senate.gov, is live with updated information on issues affecting Alaskans, full integration into Facebook and Twitter, and an overall emphasis on making the site user-friendly.
“After two-plus years in office, it was clearly time to jazz up our website a bit, and make sure we are using the latest tools and technology to keep in touch with Alaskans,” Begich said. “I look forward to hearing what Alaskans think about the new look and feel of the website, and I hope they’ll continue coming back for new information.”
Begich’s new website design has a user-friendly homepage layout meant to engage Alaskans and encourage them to keep clicking. There is full Facebook integration which will allow Alaskans to share the website items with their friends on the social network.
To better help Alaskans keep up with Begich’s work on particular issues, the “Priorities” section of the website has been completely redone with fresh information, legislative text, fact sheets, videos, photos and more.
Another highlight is the redone “About Alaska” page which provides fun and interesting factual information while debunking some myths about the 49th state. There are also other fun features such as a photo timeline on the Alaska Native and Rural Issues page showing photos from Sen. Begich and his staff’s travels across the state and a Rural Alaska video series. The first video in the series profiles Kivgiq 2011 featuring North Slope Mayor Edward Itta and Alaska State Representative Reggie Joule
Begich announced the new website through a series of web videos to his social networks:
