The New Hampshire Institute of Politics has turned to the Live Free or Die Alliance to live stream the institute's latest forum "Click, Blog, Post, Tweet ... VOTE: Social Media and the Contemporary Campaign” at 6 p.m. Sept. 27.
The forum addresses the role social media will play in the upcoming campaign season. Panelists discuss the political power of social media, the strategies utilized in an effective social media campaign, and the various tools used to communicate with constituents.
Panelists include Ryan Davis, social media director at Blue State Digital, who was a member of Howard Dean's groundbreaking 2004 Presidential Campaign Web team; Julielyn Gibbons of i3 Strategies, who has led numerous strategic communications and advocacy campaigns and was the first blogger credentialed in the Michigan Capitol; and Clay Schossow, founder and partner at New Media Campaigns, who has been involved in more than 100 online campaigns and has leveraged the web to raise millions online.
