Since Obama’s 2008 run for presidency, every political campaign includes social media. However, many experiences turned out to be complete failures. The social networking established by Nicolas Sarkozy and Ségolène Royal had to close by lack of participants. The last federal elections in Switzerland were not characterized by digital campaigns, although some avenues could have been explored. Today, a media plan that doesn’t include Facebook—a social network that reaches out to 35% of Swiss people—seems like a dangerous bet.
If Obama reinvented the way to get elected, he didn’t reinvent the way to govern. Many lessons can be learned from his campaign and, more generally, from successes and failures in political communication.
