Stumble The Candidates

I am a huge fan of StumbleUpon. In fact, I am 88% addicted to StumbleUpon and I love it when I come across something a fellow blogger has stumbled and it moves me to blog about it. A good example of this would be one of Muhammad Saleem's latest stumbles regarding the presidential candidates........

“Stumble The Candidates” lets you to choose your favorite candidate for the 2008 USA Presidential Election Campaign and stumble him/her using StumbleUpon. This way you can show your support to your favorite candidate, cause the more stumbles a candidate gets, the more is the probability of his profile being shown to StumbleUpon users. Happy Stumbling!

Evidently, this site was set up just for Stumbling the Candidates and has no affiliation with StumbleUpon.com. Every candidate is on the main page with the thumbs up button at the bottom, and each has his/her own individual page that you can stumble as well. You can also leave comments regarding your opinions of each candidate which I think is an interesting idea considering the banter between Obama and Hillary as of late.

Social media has made election 2008 extremely interesting in the fact that it is not only about each candidate's position on issues but it is now about the conversations they have with voters and each other. Never before has the conversation sparked so much interest in the presidential candidates. For example,  Buzz Networker is doing a series on each candidate's MySpace profile. So far Kevin has reviewed Hillary and John Edwards and coming next is his review of Obama.

If you're having a conversation regarding the presidential candidates and have taken part in how social media can play into the election of 2008, leave a comment and let us know all about it.

Thanks for the link, if you look at who is leading the youth vote (Obama and Edwards poll better than Hillary) and then look at their social media usage I don't think there is a big surprise.
