Australian Federal Election Candidates Showcase Power of Social Media In 2013 Campaign

Candidates for the Australian Federal election, Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott have both launched extensive campaigns for engaging audiences on social media.

sydney (I-Newswire) December 11, 2013 - Candidates for the Australian Federal election, Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott have both launched extensive campaigns for engaging audiences on social media. Social media political campaigning is not new to Australia, with the precedent of the well known "Kevin07" campaign conducted for 2007 elections for which social media had been a critical component in rallying voters the year saw extensive political social media activity.

The 2013 Federal elections have seen extensive social media activity from both candidates Kevin Rudd and Tony Scott. Inspired by successful campaigns and the increasingly importance of having a voice across social platforms, both candidates took to Twitter and Facebook to engage audiences to become voters and supporters.

However Kevin Rudd had a strategic advantage in the social media space with a massive Twitter lead, ten times larger than his competitors Tony Abbott's following.

Social media analysts have stated that there are several insights that any brand can adopt from the campaigns. For example, both candidates have used the social platform to position, strengthen and promote their own image and brand. This year the overwhelming message had to communicate the message of a "people's minister" - one that was genuine and fair to the masses. This is why tweets often included photos of their day to day Aussie life.

Further they also engaged the masses by responding to tweets on a regular basis, thereby making Twitter audiences feel they were part of their digital lives and social media identity.
