Blog The Vote- John Edwards is connected!

Posted by Reuben Ingber on May 2, 2007

David All of the David All group has an excellent post on what campaigns should be doing interms of social networking site (e.g. Facebook, MySpace, etc.). In his article he asserts that John Edwards is by far the most connected.

I have never visited the Edwards campaign site, I decided to do some investigating. On the homepage their is a link titles “Social Networks: Connect with the Campaign.” Once clicking the link you are brought to a page with over 20 different links to social networking sites, from YouTube to Flickr to others which I am invesitgating.

Why is this important, cause the campaign has tapped into something that everyone else has but has gone the extra mile. This will be the first presidential election which these websites are going to play an integral role. The website TechPresident is watching how the campaigns are doing according to the sites. Recording the number of friends a candidate on MySpace  or Facebook has, after the election we will see if being “connected,” is how to win an election.

What do you think?
