27 Social Media Lessons From Barack Obama's Presidential CampaignThe first point of contact for many Obama supporters was on their home territory or preferred social network such as Facebook, Linked In or Twitter. The Obama campaign then invited them to play on their own social network, MyBarackObama.com or MyBO. The primary function of this was to enable supporters to connect with one another.
