Obama vs. McCain In The Battle Of Social Media

I’m not an Obama fan. That much I’ve made clear on this blog here, here, and here.  But, I’m also able to put aside my political preferences and acknowledge his campaign’s mastery of the interactive space, specifically in social media.  When Obama was running against Hillary (my choice) I wrote that his success vs. the Clinton juggernaut could really be boiled down to the how they approached twitter.

This site did an even better job of showing the disparity in how Obama succeeded in the social media space, while McCain failed.  For example what the people on twitter thought about them.

Definitely make some time to read the whole post. You can start to see how your footprint in the social media space can be indicative and in some cases predictive of success.

    Disappointed by both candidate’s complete lack of respect for the United States Constitution (and frightened by the mysterious and foreboding socialist, Barack Obama), I turned to the alternative political parties to find a candidate worthy of the executive branch. I found Ron Paul.

    I gladly “threw my vote away” (as I’ve been told) on a man who would rather give the people freedom than take it away in the name of security. I will apologize to no one.

    P.s. I enjoyed your blogs.

    thanks for the comments. I feel your pain on the choices this year. Personally, I’m a Hillary guy. Was pulling for her from the beginning. I would have gladly voted for a pet rock over Obama, if the pet rock was on the ballot.
