VIDEO: Voting Is What’s Trending
Thursday, December 1st, 2011
I stopped by the Los Angeles studio of What’s Trending, when else, this Tuesday, to talk with host Shira Lazar about who we are and what we do. The video of my appearance below. Douglas Sarine recaps my visit:
With the 2012 presidential race revving up, What’s Trending asked Jacob Soboroff of Why Tuesday to stop by the studio and a talk about the state of politics online.
We started off by finding out a bit more about the Why Tuesday organization and their goal. “I think that eventually, we might be able to move election day to the weekend, so more people can vote,” Soboroff suggested.
As for how politicians are using social media, Soboroff thought that how the average citizen uses online tools to reach the politicians was the bigger issue. He mentioned terms like “Twitter-ocracy,” “Facebook-ocracy,” and “YouTube-ocracy,” as ways that we the people can cause real change in the U.S. political process.
