Social Media Political Candidate Campaign Managers Do Your Job!

social media campaign mgr 4 Social Media Political Candidate Campaign Managers Do Your Job!

Social campaign managers for the political candidates need to acknowledge their purchasing of fake Twitter followers and Facebook likes is doing nothing for the American people!

Paid robots do not:

1. Watch, read or listen to media
2. Watch, read or listen to a debate
3. Think
4. Vote!

Do your job, obtain real support and help your candidate win the election via real people that have a social security number and are authorized to legally vote in the United States of America.

Efforts of robots are for movies, not political campaigns or the future of our country!

Quit fooling both the candidates and the general population that your efforts are worth your fee or time.

My 2 cents…. off the social soapbox now.

What are your thoughts?

    Pam, I believe this is totally true but can you point me to blogs or other resources that prove it? I’d like to find out more. I thought this was a good article but it was about a business page: http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-57482220-93/firm-ditches-facebook-for-twitter-claims-clicks-are-bots/
    (Interesting that it got little exposure among the fans of my FB page!)

    Unfortunately, they aren’t the only ones. Companies have done it too.

  • Pam Moore @PamMktgNut

    Absolutely agree Deanna Albrecht. However, it will eventually easy catch up to companies as they achieve no ROI, hurt their brand etc. The difference with the political candidates is they use it to influence action based on over hyped and exaggerated support that impacts our economy, jobs, health etc.

    Pam,
     
    This is no different than what political organizers have always done. Now they have a new medium. Organizers often pay people to show up at rallies and fund raisers where the attendance is in question. There was an event in NYC some years ago where the organizers paid homeless people to show up. The crowd was huge.
     
    Imagine how bad it would look of a candidate planned a rally and no one showed up? Compare that to the kind of media coverage they would get if their event were attended by thousands.
     
    Sadly, politics and honest are often worlds apart. These days it seems to be more about appearance and fluff than actual substance.
     
    Got room for two on your soapbox? I’ll gladly join you.
     
    Cheers,Marc

    I wonder about the metrics they use to analyze. People who are new to twitter often follow many but have fewer followers. I saw screen caps of Romney’s twitter followers grow completely unrealistically in the wee hours of the night. I feel sure someone would have noticed this if it happened to Obama’s account.
     
    I think it’s certainly worth investigating. Let’s tweet @ABC @IowaDebate and ask them to have the candidates answer the question and be ready to prove it. My guess is that @MittRomney would clutch his hanky, cling to secrecy and tell you people to take him at his word. Too bad he has lied so much as to make that laughable. Some people are keeping track. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/03/14/1074486/-EVERY-Romney-Lie-In-One-Place-UPDATED
