Social media and the 2012 elections

Two weeks from today, voters across the country will go to the polls to cast their ballots for president (along with a host of other candidates and ballot issues). No other election has seen such heavy use of social media for candidates and campaigns to communicate with voters - for good reason.

Social media has become an essential tool for any modern political campaign, because voters use social media to both learn about candidates and causes and to recruit friends to join campaigns or learn more about issues.
