Brilliant Fred Stutzman had a great post yesterday looking at Barack Obama’s social network online initiative. As he says ‘simply creating a blog does not equate to meaningful use of the blog’ – it’s all about the strategy and Barack and others seem to be rocking it out in their sites’ early stages.
I love the fact that politicians are beginning to engage with me in my little Internet bubble. The presidential elections are still months away and the fact that I get all this politico screentime with my future/potential leaders is key in getting me primed to support my chosen candidates in more concrete Real World ways.
Check out the techPresident site to get a big picture view on how candidates are utilizing the Web for their upcoming campaigns. This truly is a fascinating era to live in.
