QuickNews: Obama 2012 Campaign on Tumblr

Oct 24, 2011 No Comments by

The Obama 2012 Presidential Campaign has started a Tumblr blog. He’s doing it again – reaching out to the youngest voters with the most popular technology. Tumblr is mostly known for its younger audience and its reshare button. If you use Tumblr or have visited Tumblr blogs, most of the pictures or posts are actually reshared. The campaign is hoping that because of this, people will keep resharing the posts and pictures so that the campaign will have influence all over the internet. This is what Obama’s first post said :

HI, TUMBLR.

 

It’s nice to meet you.

There are lots of reasons we’re excited to be launching the Obama 2012 campaign’s new Tumblr today. But mostly it’s because we’re looking at this as an opportunity to create something that’s not just ours, but yours, too.

We’d like this Tumblr to be a huge collaborative storytelling effort—a place for people across the country to share what’s going on in our respective corners of it and how we’re getting involved in this campaign to keep making it better.

It’s possible because of Tumblr’s submission feature.

You can send us a few paragraphs about how your latest phonebanking gig went or why you’re in for 2012. Share the latest chart you saw that made you go “woah.” Ask a question. Upload a photo of 2012 t-shirts or signs you see out in the wild. Pass along jokes, particularly if they’re funny. And if you’re among the Tumbl-inclined, send us posts you’ve published on your own Tumblr that we should look at re-blogging.

There will be trolls among you: this we know. We ask only that you remember that we’re people—fairly nice ones—and that your mother would want you to be polite.

Thanks, Tumblr. We’re looking forward to getting to know you.”
