Can Social Media Predict The Election Result?

on August 16, 2013 | Australia | Comments (0)

That is the big question everyone is asking.

Both sides have been working tirelessly on getting their social media followers to Like, Comment on and Share their latest political messages.

We have seen the Facebook pages for both Liberal and Labor explode over the past month.

Just going on the Facebook comments and Tweets there is no clear sign of a winner just yet.

Tony Jones on Lateline put together this great piece on how both sides of politics are getting social media into overdrive, and receiving huge feedback on both sides.

Social Media no doubt allows political parties to connect with younger generations like never before.


Then, we also need to ask – can the bookies predict the election result already?
