Make your campaign count. Don't waste my time on a time waster like Facebook. I don't know about you but it's hard to get excited about all these elections. The Canadian election was a major let down, Harper must be sad behind his cheers of a 'stronger' minority government. Jack Leighton makes me laugh with his after speech of the strength of the NDP... though I guess they did do considerably better in this election then the Liberals. Yes, yes, this is all old news, but with the US election at our door step and the municipal elections close behind, I must rant about my frustration with poor Social Network use and campaigns. It's just bugging me. Living in the Fraser Valley I have the privilege of voting in my first municipal election. I'm excited to be a part of it. However, living in the Fraser Valley and knowing Chilliwack and Abbotsford are vying for voters, Facebook has become a disgusting space for nominees to rally the troops. I mean, if I wanted to see a Sears picture of the people running for council I would visit Sears, not Facebook. Secondly, if you're trying to distract me from the distraction of Facebook already, why bring me to a terribly designed site where you've put no time or energy in how you're trying to communicate your platform. I am all for making my vote count, I am all for campaigning in new and creative ways, but do it right. Don't waste that space on the Social Networks for terrible ads. Put some energy into it. I know I'm going to give those ads thumbs down and let Facebook know the ads are irrelevant, misleading or uninteresting. I vote for better communication and marketing if you want to be the person who speaks for me in my local, provincial or federal government.
