Obama Everywhere Obama has gained 5 million supporters in other social networks. Obama maintained a profile in more than 15 online communities , including BlackPlanet, a MySpace for African Americans, and Eons, a Facebook for baby boomers. On Facebook, where about 3.2 million (during the campaign) signed up as his supporters, a group called Students for Barack Obama was created in July 2007. It was so effective at energizing college-age voters that senior aides made it an official part of the campaign the following spring. And Facebook users did vote: On Facebook's Election 2008 page, which listed an 800 number to call for voting problems, more than 5.4 million users clicked on an "I Voted" button to let their Facebook friends know that they made it to the polls.

McCain vs Obama on the web (1) Engagement and Participation During the primary-election examination, the Obama Web site focused heavily—more than that of any other candidate from either party—on engaging supporters and motivating them to turn their enthusiasm into on-the-ground, grassroots activities Both campaign websites offer two ways of facilitating user engagement—allowing people to communicate with the campaign, personalize their own pages, and sign up to receive information updates For most of the summer, however, many of these features on the McCain site were not yet operational. They are now up and running. The McCain website offers customization tools through “McCainSpace,” a feature advertised as early as 2007 but not fully functioning until August of 2008 . As late as August 1, the only option was to create a personal page— and even that was still not really working . That page displayed only a generic note that the page was “under construction” and they would notify us when it went live. As that page went live, McCainSpace also launched additional customization features. Users can now post McCain videos, pictures and blogs to their home pages, and with a few clicks send any of that material out to users of 25 different social networking sites.

Both websites offer RSS feeds and let users sign up to e-mail updates. Since the primary season, Obama has added mobile phone text updates to his list of delivery options. Neither candidate offers podcasts of campaign information, something only a few candidates offered during the primary season.

McCain’s missteps: astroturfing Asking supporters to cut and paste talking points into blog comment threads in exchange for prizes? Its bribing, not authentic and undermines what social media are all about . See www.womma.org for Word Of Mouth Marketing Code of Conduct!
