Here are my takeaways from the scorecard above:

On Facebook – Faith Louden gained the most new followers over the past month. She was closely followed by Brian Chisholm, Nic Kipke and Meagan Simonaire. Brian Chisholm two month trend in new followers is the most impressive of the candidates. Don Dwyer is still listing a personal page and as such is still not listed on the scorecard.

On Twitter – Paul Drgos added over 100 new followers over the past month, by far leading the pack. Brian Chisholm and Nic Kipke also both added an impressive number of new followers.

On YouTube – No new videos have been posted from the candidates with YouTube channels. This is somewhat disappointing and I hope to see some activity on these platforms in the future.

Overall – No question that Nic Kipke holds a significant outreach advantage over the other candidates. I am impressed with Brian Chisholm and his overall two month trend of adding new followers on Facebook and Twitter and as such give him the number two slot overall. Paul Drgos continues to do a great job adding new followers on Twitter and will rank him in third. Notable mention for Faith Louden and Meagan Simonaire who showed some strength with the number of new Facebook followers added and I will be interested to see if they can continue their momentum.

Of course the reality of followers, likes, and subscribers does not mean a lot when it comes down to voting in the end, but it is a fun exercise to do and makes a great resource for following all of these candidates.
