Social Media was a powerful tool during this election. Both candidates were more or less involved and engaged in Twitter. Every time I refreshed feed, 100 or more tweets were being tweeted. It was amazing to see how quickly one is able to receive information and news on important topics.
In my social media class, I learned that there are many myths on social media marketing and one individual on Twitter, posted, “For those who think, Twitter’s a waste of time, lets point out how often its mentioned during the election coverage.” It is very important to recognize that social media is evolving and is a useful tool for brands, candidates and everyone who is using it successfully. I did see that everyone was very excited for this election and was integrated in all social media platforms.
What relationship did you see this election have with social media?
