Here are my takeaways from the scorecard above:

Wendi Peters continues to make significant gains with Facebook followers adding almost 100 new followers over the past month.

Gene Stanton and Barrie Ciliberti both added a decent number (40 or more) of new Facebook followers.

On Twitter, no one candidate is standing out but without question the top three in adding new followers over the past several months have been Wendi Peters, Gene Stanton and Kathy Afzali.

It was nice to see a new YouTube channel from Wendi Peters. She added two new videos. I am guessing these are radio ads she is running (these are basically audio messages with a photo background).

I am going to continue to call Wendi Peters the overall technology outreach leader in this race. She is adding the most new Facebook followers, trending well on Twitter, now has some YouTube outreach and the only candidate promoting a Google+ page.

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.
