Friends in New Places

Political folks have increasingly been using the internet and various social networking tools to reach voters. This never-ending campaign season, especially, has seen candidates embracing social networks and attempting to reach young voters, especially.

This morning I had a friend request from a candidate. While I know this is going on, I was still surprised. (I’ve removed the candidate’s name, since it’s not germane to the conversation.)

Dear Olmsted County Caucus Goer,

You are invited to join FaceBook if you aren’t already a member. This will provide greater opportunity for updates beyond email distribution.

Thanks for your support!

Sincerely,

[Name Here] for Congress.

I’ve added him as a “friend.” It will be interesting to see what sorts of communication I’ll get.
