OK, I am not going to blog about politics. I did find this blog post interesting: Atwitter in Mass.: Brown’s Social Media Strategy Tops Coakley’s. It looks like Scott Brown took a page right out of President Obama’s campaign play book.
Here is the data from the article:
Facebook Posts since Jan. 1: Brown (128), Coakley (58)
Facebook Fans: Brown (70,800), Coakley (13,529)
Tweets since Jan. 1: Brown (142), Coakley (144)
Twitter Followers: Brown (9,679), Coakley (3,385)
YouTube Videos: Brown (57), Coakley (52)
YouTube Video Views: Brown (578,271), Coakley (51,173)
Again, no politics, I just find the numbers provide a lesson in how social media can shape politics.
