For Franklin D. Roosevelt, it was radio. For John F. Kennedy, it was television. And for presidential candidates in 2012, the key to communicating with the masses and garnering votes on Election Day is social media. Political strategists and social media/technology experts Maria Cardona, Andrew Rasiej, Daniel Sieberg, Alex Torpey and Todd Van Etten will join the National Constitution Center to take a hard look at the role of social media and its impact on the 2012 presidential campaign. Jonathan Capehart of The Washington Post will moderate the discussion. The event takes place on Thursday, April 19 at 6:30 p.m. Admission is FREE but advanced registration is required
This program is presented in partnership with the Kal and Lucille Rudman Media Production Center at Temple University and the Kal and Lucille Rudman Institute for Entertainment Industry Studies at Drexel University.
