After the 2008 election, pundits and analysts had a lot to say about the effect that the Internet had on the outcome — particularly praising Barack Obama’s campaign for their success in organizing and fundraising online.
After the 2012 election, we’ll be interested to see what the experts thinks regarding another new trend: The efforts to include smartphone “apps” as part of a campaign strategy. Both Obama and Mitt Romney have deployed apps to varying degrees. Romney’s campaign even went so far as to tout an app that would serve as the announcement for his choice on a running mate, but that’s didn’t work out so well.
We’ve also seen plenty of apps from organizations not affiliated with either campaign, such as the “Make Mitt Pay” game from an organization called “Sunlight is the Best Disinfectant.”
