Use social media to promote John

Help John Win without leaving your desk! Help spread the message about John and his ideas as quickly as possible. Making use of your existing social media presence is an easy way to start. Here are some tips!

Facebook

On FaceBook you can "like" John's leadership campaign page. You can also suggest to your friends that they like it to. This is a great way to reach a lot of people with very little effort. People don't mind getting these suggestions either.

You can also set your status to help John every once and a while. You could say something like "(your name) is supporting John Horgan for NDP leader and wants you to join the NDP right now so you can vote for John".

Another thing you can do on FaceBook is to change your profile pic. Check back here so you can download a picture that will help John get elected.

Some of you might like to start a group on FaceBook to support John. An example might be "Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca for John Horgan", or something similar.

Twitter

Twitter is a great way to share links and ideas. Follow John on Twitter and help him by retweeting his messages. You can also tweet most of the content on this website. Of course, the odd supportive tweet is greatly appreciated. If you want to have a broader reach, follow more people you know who might be interested or who you know are party members and can vote in the leadership content. They will most likely follow you back and see your messages as a result.

flickr

John will be posting campaign photos on his flickr stream. Visit his stream and make him a contact if you are on flickr. flickr allows you to share photos in a number of ways. Just click the share link at the top of any photo and you can send it via e-mail, post it to a blog or Facebook and more. You can also favourite and comment on john's photos on flickr to help increase their popularity.

John will be posting videos on his YouTube channel. YouTube allows you to share videos really easily. You can embed them in FaceBook or share them using Twitter. You can also easily embed them in your blog if you happen to be a blogger.
