New research directions are serving the objectives of e-participation process, the following are proposed by Peristeras et al., (2009): the emergence of Web 3.0 era (which combines Web 2.0 with semantic web to facilitate e-participation through intelligent technology), combining isolated and scattered information to create knowledge within government, and finally, the mass collaborative public networks for discussing and formulating public policies. Within few years, social media achieved a very broad audience base because of its openness, interaction, collaboration, content-generation, crowed-sourcing, responsiveness, loosely-coupled communities, transparency, and user participation.

    • "Ensuring usable and well-arranged e- Participation across local, regional, national, and international governmental borders demands interoperability among all applied ICT solutions (Elmir & Bounabat, 2012; Peristeras et al., 2009). Furthermore, a neutral organization should be engaged to realize such a platform to preserve the independence of the participation project (Rowe & Frewer, 2000). "

    ABSTRACT: e-Participation has advantages over traditional modes of public participation: independent of time and place, information can be provided and updated at reasonable costs. A broad range of citizens can be involved regardless of demographics, family or work situation, thereby broadening the basis for public participation. Thus, public authorities seek to employ social media for the purposes of project management in terms of e-Participation. Nevertheless, social media presents challenges that need to be resolved to be suitable for e-Participation, such as user-friendliness, technical requirements for information preparation, and data protection requirements. Reviewing the literature, it is concluded that although common social media solutions are successful in generating attention for participation projects, they are not necessarily appropriate for conducting the project itself. Therefore, the case of a reference company offering a specialized platform and social network is introduced. It was identified as good practice in recent reports published by the European Commission.

    • "Moreover more intelligent technology will lead to more research areas serving the e-participation process. Peristeras et al., [3] discuss four areas in the emergent of web 3.0 era (which combines web 2.0 with semantic web to facilitate e-participation through intelligent technologies).The first two areas, combining isolated and scattered information to create knowledge within government, and the last two areas, allow for mass collaborative public networks for discussing and formulating policy considers.

    ABSTRACT: For improving political participatory processes, many governments adopt information and communication technologies (ICT) to facilitate their relationship with citizens, which is known as " electronic participation ". This paper investigates the literature seeking for diverse practices in this area, and concludes to a framework depicting the e-participation stage model (e-participating levels). Also, this work focuses on the performance indicators related to each level and the most suitable technical tools for these levels. Conclusions are depicted at the end.
