Social media enlivens federal election race
ZINC presentation links Nenshi campaign's social media insights to federal election
ZINC Research has today published the second of its two-part presentation on the effects of social media in the era of "Elections 2.0," a term used to describe the dramatic effects of instant communication and interaction via social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.

The presentation was delivered last week by ZINC Research president Brian F. Singh at the annual meeting of the Market Research and Intelligence Association, held this year in Winnipeg. Part 1 provided insights on social media innovations used by Naheed Nenshi's campaign team (of which Singh was a member) in last fall's Calgary mayoralty race. Part 2 describes how these same tools and resources can and are reshaping the way Canadians are participating, and commenting on, the federal election.
