Visual Networking is Key for Presidential Candidates

I love using video on this blog as much as possible. It helps communicate messages easily and video is more fun to digest, rather than loads of text. Visual Networking isn’t just in reference to videos on YouTube or video chat online; it is the activity of communicating through video over the network, no matter the context. Our presidential candidates have impressively capitalized on visual networking. The results of a visual networking pulse survey were released earlier today. Take a look at a few of the stats below and you will see that those participating in visual networking throughout the election are more in tune with the goings on of the presidential race.

-- Online video users appear more engaged in the 2008 presidential election than their non-online video user counterparts -- 62 percent of online video users, as opposed to 37 percent of non-online video users, follow the presidential election closely -- 68 percent of online video users, as opposed to only 47 percent of non-online video users, followed both the Democratic and Republican National Conventions.

While I do watch the debates and follow commentary, the videos derived from the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner were by far the most entertaining for me. What is your favorite video from this election? Let us know in the comment section :-)
