Social Media and Election

When you read the newspaper today or tomorrow, you will probably find that we will have another federal election, again. That marks the fourth time in seven years. The date is going to be set somewhere around May. In the next two months, candidates will have to sell themselves to gain votes from us. However, this year will be a little bit different. As social media becomes one of the most popular channel to reach the audiences, I expect some candidates will have their promotional campaign on social medias to gain public awareness.
Here is a link that talks about what the Prime Minister and other parties leaders are doing on social media.
