The Presidential Race & Social Media [infographic]

June 18, 2012 |  by  |  Government, Internet

In the last presidential election President Obama utilized social media better than any president before him, of course social media hasn’t been for that many elections. This year it seems like Obama is not going to be the only one using social media. Although according to today’s infographic Obama is still dominating most social media perhaps this is because of his demographic? I’m sure having a younger more liberal demographic helps in the social media race. In the GOP Mitt Romney and Ron Paul seem to have dominated the other opponents, again Ron Paul has that younger demographic helping him out. By no means will social media determine who our next president is but it is nice to see that our candidates are moving with the times.

Everyone no matter your party should go out and vote. There is a difference between liking something on Facebook and actually going to the polls. [via]
