Why aren’t the candidates all-out in Social Media? We see a lot of them tweeting (more often now than before). But not many have taken it to the next level. Except for two (so far): Aquino and Estrada have started their Facebook Ads… and from what I hear, that can get quite expensive. I wonder if COMELEC can monitor those? It is charged per LIKE stemming from the ad.
From stats before filing to stats after filing, we saw Angara get a double increase on his FB page. But here’s the interesting part, from the day after filing until today, we see Aquino jump from 8,000 FB LIKEs to 34,000! And of course we cannot say that his popularity did not play a part, it did – but I am sure that the FB ads of his played a major role in it. Since I saw the ad, I can tell his demographic is 20+ to at least 40. It is working.
So to everyone else, get in there!
Let’s see the ranking now (I found everyone except Trillanes on Twitter; David on FB Fanpage and Montano on both FB and Twitter):
|Risa Hontiveros Baraquel||4||22,808||40,518||63,326|
|JC de los Reyes||23||268||21||289|
|Grace Poe Llamanzares||25||36||54||90|
