Social Media: The New Political Battleground

This year's presidential race is arguably the first to fully reflect a major political shift to the digital world. Tim Pawlenty announced his run for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination on Facebook. Newt Gingrich announced his via Twitter. Presidential campaign staffers are working around the clock to turn online supporters into voters and donors. Will candidates who don’t show up on this digital playing field be left in the dust?

Social media expert Andrew Rasiej, MSNBC contributor Jonathan Capehart, seasoned Democratic strategist Maria Cardona, Crowdverb’s Todd Van Etten, and technology reporter Daniel Sieberg will join the National Constitution Center for a timely discussion about the new political battleground. This program is presented in partnership with the Kal and Lucille Rudman Media Production Center at Temple University and the Kal and Lucille Rudman Institute for Entertainment Industry Studies at Drexel University and and is part of Election 2012, the Center’s yearlong programming series on the key issues facing Americans during this important election year.
