Social media shouldn’t be necessary – The Oshawa Express – Ontario News


Dear Editor,

I have always like Bob Chapman as a politician. I have voted for him in the past and would vote for him as the PC candidate.

It is a little sad that for some reason he, or his campaign, think that opening a Facebook account is somehow a necessary part of the electoral politics. Facebook is nothing more than a means of engaging with a large section of the “it is all about me” generation which this type of thing appeals too. It is almost as bad as a Twitter account which is, in many respects, nothing more than mob rule in 140 characters.

If it takes a Facebook account to secure the participation of the young, politically disengaged voter in our political process, then it doesn’t say much about young voters.
