Social Marketing hits the Democrats but Republicans more

Jeremiah Owyang a  Snr Analyst at Forrester Research: Social Computing is one of my essential reads in the Blog universe. He is that mix of brainy and practical  which eludes most analysts.

His latest blog on the impact of social media  touches a topic that is close to my heart which is does Social Media skew  left or right?.  Or in my cousins terms does social media  skew  towards Barack Obama or John McCain. My thesis, which I should note is untested, is that by its very nature social media lends itself to Barack Obama as it opens up discussion and that favors the left. I figured it was a check mate.

Social media  is  still a goofy kids bike with safety wheels but it is a huge step forward.   Now I figured  the left or Barack Obama   had an open playing field.

I’m not so sure anymore.

Check out Jeremiah’s   observations on whether  Social Media Space tends to skew s Democratic and towards Barack Obama?

I think it does –  let me know what you think.
