We want you to join the discussion on Facebook and Twitter.
Our Facebook and Twitter has been abuzz this week with conversation, and we owe a part of that to you all. This past week, we saw a huge rise in our Facebook “likes” with close to 20 joining our page, and we hope to continue to see more. This past week, everyone gave their opinion for our dining debate series pertaining to the Best Chinese Food. Although, the Florissant pick, No. 1 China, lost this week, we’ll surely win the dining war. We asked about people’s interest in seeing a forum/live chat event with the candidates on the April 3 ballot, and we’ve heard that people would love to see something like this. (Feel free to chime in on what you would like to see below.) We also saw a number of people “like” our story regarding the Ferguson…

Plus: Santorum surges, while Martin and Koster make news for different reasons.
Campaigns these days can no longer just rely on advertisements and direct mail to deliver a message. They also need to have a quick-fire presence on the Web. That aforementioned statement is not necessarily revolutionary. Campaigns have utilized the Web as both a messaging tool and an opposition research mechanism for more than a decade. But with more and more people getting information about politics and politicians through the Web, the demand is high for manpower to update Twitter pages, fill Facebook pages, manage e-mail lists and organize YouTube videos. For instance, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) announced – via, of course, Twitter – that Blue State Digital’s Alex Kellner would be joining her re-election campaign as a digital director…

Local social media folks say there’s no replacement for a face-to-face connection
Celebrities do it. Politicians do it. Sport figures, too. Not to mention your neighbor, your high school sweetheart and the owner of your favorite coffee shop. Social networking is part of our social fabric. Dictionary.com defines a social network as follows: “a website where one connects with those sharing personal or professional interests, place of origin, education at a particular school, etc.” Among my social network are hundreds of people I have never met in real life. When I do meet someone I first connected with via Twitter, for example, it’s kind of exciting. It feels something like running into a celebrity you’ve long admired. Many people describe the encounter as akin to reuniting with an old friend; you already know a lot about…
