Social Media, Politics, and the Election: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Social Media, Politics, and the Election: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
More than half of adults in the U.S. receive news from social media, and that means that social networks play an outsized role in politics. By looking at how media content is being consumed on social, you can draw important conclusions about the election, and more broadly about consumer attention. SocialFlow CEO Jim Anderson has more than a decade of experience working with high-growth companies and the social media platforms, and helped lead Vitrue’s successful exit to Oracle in 2012. He’ll draw on that experience, and data from more than a trillion social impressions generated by SocialFlows blue-chip media clients, as he shares his thoughts on social media and the electionand offers insights that will last well beyond this election season.
