While some candidates have not really established their websites yet (Cohen), and others have not even formally declared their intentions (Pierre and Fox), they certainly are working behind the scenes on Facebook to gather up some supporters. I guess the message about social media, blogging and the Barack Obama experience fell on some ears that were listening.
So, who is winning the race for Mayor of Annapolis according to Facebook Friends? In no particular order as of this posting:
- Dave Cordle-R (27)
- Chris Fox-I (309)
- Sam Shropshire-D (94)
- Josh Cohen-D (284)
- Trudy McFall-D (17)
- Zina Pierre-D (73)
Wayne Taylor and Gilbert Renaut seem to be missing from the Facebook crowd; but it seems that if we held the election on Facebook, Chris Fox would have an 8% lead on Josh Cohen. Do you have a favorite? Why not click on the link and become a friend!
Now I guess the real question is who are the Twitterers and who are they tweeting?
