Early Facebook Look at Maryland’s 8th Congressional District election, 2016

Most Facebook Followers in MD08

I wrote about the number of Twitter followers in MD08 back on July 7th (READ HERE) so I thought I would share the number of Facebook followers for each “Campaign” page. I always catch heck over this evaluation as candidates regularly tell me about the number of followers they have on their “personal” Facebook account. As I have no way to accurately track that information, I do not use it as part of my technology evaluations for campaigns.

Note – I have no tracking data yet so use this as a reference today and know more detailed tracking data will be coming in future posts about this race.

Could not find a page

Notes – I was not able to find any online information for David Anderson. If anyone out there knows anything about his website or social media outreach let me know so I can get it added to future posts.

Liz Matory is running as an Independent in MD08. She currently has 257 Facebook followers (https://www.facebook.com/LizForCongress) which would put her near the bottom of this group. In future evaluations I will add Liz to the chart as an Independent candidate.

Now that I have written about Twitter and Facebook outreach…Look for the ScottE poll on this race coming later today.

Here is a good resource for information from Ballotpedia:  http://ballotpedia.org/Maryland’s_8th_Congressional_District_election,_2016
