The premise of LIKE is simple: follow the rules, and take the right steps to use social media in any campaign, political or otherwise. The simple rules outlined in LIKE explain how social media has permanently shifted conversations with constituents and consumers, who no longer wait for a candidate or organization to identify a problem or its solution, but who expect to be engaged as a part of the process.
LIKE is a collaborative effort undertaken by Dave Ladd, Kelly Groehler, Greg Swanholm, and Bass Zanjani who worked together in exploring the gaps in social media utilization by candidates in the 2010 Minnesota gubernatorial race. LIKE is the culmination of their study findings, combined with their unique professional experiences in corporate and marketing communications, public policy development, campaigns and grassroots organizing. Together they have successfully translated their expertise and experience into an easy-to-follow set of rules and steps that can be used across a broad spectrum of interests.
