​Facebook is still King. It's where the Voters are!

One of the most common questions I get from candidates when I'm training them is, "What social media platforms should I be on?"

Keeping your engagement up and the quality of your interactions high is critical. A presence on a few platforms, managed well, is much better than a hodge-podge with a poorly executed strategy. The next decision is which platforms to start with.
