William Bell Myspace ProfileOne of the issues that has come up during this year’s mayoral campaign in Birmingham (at least among us out here on the web) is the candidates’ web presence. There are very few extensive websites, though one candidate has now expanded his campaign into the world of MySpace.

Following the lead of national presidential candidates, William Bell has become the first person running for Birmingham’s mayor’s office to create a MySpace profile. His actual site is still not up and running; however, as of the time of this posting, the current City Councilor for District 5 already had 54 “friends” who had accepted his invitation to join his page on the popular social networking site. Time will tell if others will follow suit and use other Web 2.0 technologies as the race continues on.
