Ron Paul Social Network: Supporters Launch Grassroots Campaign for 2012 Presidential Election
December 21, 2011
Grassroots Supporters Launch Ron Paul Social Network; New Web 2.0 Social Network Community Dedicated Specifically to Presidential Candidate Ron Paul
(PALM BEACH, Florida) — They’re calling it the “Ron Paul Social Network”. Two high tech developers from Palm Beach County, Florida have worked together to create RonPaulSocialNetwork.com, a grassroots social networking community dedicated entirely to helping people connect, discuss and share information about Texas Congressman and Presidential Candidate Ron Paul around the globe.
Thanks to the availability of Web 2.0 technologies Ron Paul supporters now have a social network they call home. The website allows Paul supporters to create profiles, share videos, photos, blogs and create custom pages or groups for Ron Paul campaign events while helping raise awareness for the 2012 Presidential Campaign. The purpose for the site is aimed at getting Ron Paul’s message of Freedom and Constitutional Government out to the voters.
RonPaulSocialNetwork.com is a resource for people to connect and meet like-minded individuals while in an online atmosphere which looks and feels much like other large social networks running today – along with all the bells and whistles; friend others, comment, like and share videos, stick posts, rate users, create online polls and more.
The two developers who maintain their own IT businesses individually teamed up initially creating the concept based on their interest in the candidate himself along with the idea that Paul’s highly motivated supporters would benefit from the targeted content shared among its followers. The endeavor also pushes to contribute to increased awareness of the campaign and benefit the overall cause voters are already extremely passionate about: Liberty and Freedom in America.
To help drive initial traffic to the website, the idea was posted to popular social networks and Web 2.0 properties shortly after the site was launched where user membership signup to RonPaulSocialNetwork.com began growing rapidly.
Ron Paul has the most web-savvy supporters in history. Consistently winning online polls, dominating Internet comments, chat, and now with a dedicated social networking site all its own, the passion of his followers is clear.
Stated on the sites About Us page: “The eye-popping reality of the situation is this. No longer can it be said that Ron Paul is running for President. Amazingly enough, his candidacy has been hijacked, and it appears now that the people are running for President – through Ron Paul! That’s the true revolution about which your neighbors are speaking.”
Social networking web sites give a voice to the voiceless, sometimes quite literally. It enables conversations that couldn’t otherwise happen and builds relationships and trust between colleagues and strangers alike. Ron Paul enjoys significant effort from grassroots supporters who helped the Ron Paul Presidential Campaign meet a $4 million dollar money bomb goal on Sunday, mostly from thousands of small donations.
