New Trend for Political Activism

SMS = Short Messaging Service

During the 2012 election politicians were using social media as a new way to reach potential voters. Facebook and Twitter were the most popular social media platforms, take for example Obama’s 20+million Twitter followers. With SendTree your campaign can stay ahead of the curve with the next big trend in social media, mobile messaging.

A recent Qualcomm Mobile Technology survey reported that 29% of Americans said their wireless device is always the first and last thing they look at every day. With more than 1 in 4 people checking their cell phones regularly, mobile devises have become a part of peoples’ daily routines. In addition to routine checks, a Pew Internet Survey found that 81% of cell phone owners reported using their mobile devices for sending and receiving text messages.
