Study: Today’s grassroots political campaigns burn without social media Study: Today’s grassroots political campaigns burn without social media July 16, 2010 Social media is fundamentally changing how political-advocacy groups organize grassroots campaigns. A new study by the public relations and communications consultancy Burson-Marsteller found that 97 percent of such groups now use at least one social-media platform to communicate with stakeholders. The study tracked the presence on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube of 34 U.S. political-advocacy groups, including the AARP, the Human Rights Campaign and the National Taxpayers Union. Only one of the groups examined had no social media presence on any of the platforms, and 91 percent used all three platforms — most often to communicate their views on specific federal legislation and regulation.
