Social media rankings for the candidates

Pete Quily did this fascinating analysis of how well Peter Ladner and Gregor Robertson campaigns did in using social media. You can read about it here. I’m supposed to be giving a talk on YouTube politics next week, which will be easy because it was so noticeable how much more people were using YouTube, Facebook, twitter and the rest.

These tools are so prevalent now that, in the journalism course I teach, I have an assignment that specifically requires my students to know how to search social media to get information about people in the news.
