Internet Election


How did you follow the general election? The political parties invested a huge amount of effort into trying to reach their supporters and undecided voters through social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Before polling day, I investigated whether this is the first internet election...

The report includes an interview with Richard Allan from Facebook and Dr Peter Woodcock from Huddersfield University.

This video is also on the ITV Yorkshire website.

  1. Interesting question Mark - but without doubt this was a TV election, the debates, Gillian Duffy et al. Web was in catch-up, except poss Twitter as a snippets zone
