Social Media for Politicians. A Growing Trend in Sri Lanka

Another election is coming up in the horizon in this part of the world where I live in. This time it’s going to be a parliamentary election, which happens every six years according to the Sri Lanka constitution.

Beneath all these drama, there is completely a new dimension of political marketing budding in, which only a handful of them tried out during the 2004 general election. Politicians are beginning to discover the internet, and they are sensing the power of social media and online communities. Politicians in this part of the world, are increasingly trying to strengthen their presence on the internet and social networking sites, most definitely following the foot steps of Barack Obama, who’s campaign was the best case study of effective use of social media for political campaigning.
