Use Facebook to oppose Obamacare...new tools.
Conservative Outpost

Posted on 10/08/2009 8:40:04 AM PDT by Drew McKissick

Fellow conservative,

We have another upgrade to our campaign to "Say NO to Socialized Medicine" and stop Obamacare.

Now you can participate (and invite others to do so) on Facebook!

The campaign is available here, on the "Take Aktion!" tab of our Facebook page.

From there you can sign the petition, fax your members of Congress, join the campaign - and invite others to participate as well.  But now you can use your Facebook network to help spread the word!

As you know, liberals in Congress are still working to push for a government run "public option", despite the opposition of the American people.

It is critical that they continue to hear from us - which means we must keep up the pressure and continue to spread the word!

We've just made it easier to do exactly that by making our campaign available on Facebook.

Help spread the word by joining our campaign on Facebook and invite your friends to join as well.

You can also take your support to the next level by adding the campaign application to your Facebook profile.  This will allow you to add the campaign to a "Take Aktion!" tab that can appear on your profile and make it easy for others to see your support of the campaign.

Simply click the blue "Go to Application" button in the upper left corner of the AktNow application page, then click "allow" to give it permission to run on your Facebook profile.  (See the example below)

I thought that topics involving Obama more properly belonged in Assbook?

I don’t see facebook as very effective, nor do I see twitter.

Twitter is for cell phones, facebook is for children with nothing to do.

I am open to be shown the light ...

Posting on facebook is like passing permanent gas.

All my friends and family are on facebook. My parents are 65 and all their friends are on facebook. It isn’t just for kids. I’m 37 and my friends count is almost 500 and the ages of my friends range from kids to senior citizens, with the majority middle aged.

As of January 2009, there were more than 21,000,000 Facebook users of voting age, and 4.4 million under voting age.

From a recent report:

1) The 35-54 year old demo is growing fastest, with a 276.4% growth rate in over the approximate 6 months since we last produced this report
2) The 55+ demo is not far behind with a 194.3% growth rate
3) The 25-34 year population on Facebook is doubling every 6 months
4) For those interested in advertising alcohol on Facebook, there are 27,912,480 users 21+, representing 66.3% of all users
5) Miami is the fastest growing metropolitan area (88.5%) and Atlanta (6.4%) is the slowest
6) There are more females (55.7%) than males (42.2%) on Facebook – 2.2% are of unknown gender.
7) The largest demographic concentration remains the college crowd of 18-24 year olds (40.8%) which is down from (53.8%) six months ago.

I use Facebook also. My daughter told me that Facebook is for family and Myspace is for her friends.

Do you still drive a horse and buggy, or a car? Do you use smoke signals and telegraph to communicate, or do you have a phone? Do you get your news from newspapers and local/network TV, or have you discovered Fox and (obviously) the internet?

The mentality of "facebook is for children with nothing to do" is a big reason Obamanation is sitting in the WH as we speak. Their side, realizing that younger people are far more tech-savvy than older folks, used technology to their advantage. Our side, regardless of age, had better embrace technology and social networking, because that's where the next generation of voters is getting their news. If we don't get tech savvy, we'll lose again and again, and eventually fade into obscurity in a United Socialist States of the New World Order.

I use Facebook along with my friends in their 60’s and friends in their 20’s. It is for everyone.

I use Facebook, and so does my Mother-in-law and Brothers-in-laws. None of us, to my knowledge, have been ‘children’ for at least 15 years.

Nice smear attempt, though.

facebook has become, for me, a combination classmate reunion, family reunion, townhall meeting all wrapped in one.

Making contact with people I haven’t seen in decades.

I think it would be nice if you mentioned that there is a charge to contact officials through your group. There is a charge right?

Wasn’t attempting to smear, just that I know many teens and they are enthralled with facebook ... Twitter it’s all about phones.

I just find blogs far more useful ... Facebook is loaded up with all kinds of foolishness. I also don’t think it a good idea to put personal stuff online for all to go over.

What’s your facebook page, I do have an account there, and do follow Sarah’s page.

I doubt your insinuation that facebook users had anything significant to do with Obama being elected. The false hope of free stuff by ignorant people had more to do with that than anything else.

Being a software techies for decades, I doubt what you are saying about old folks. Even the wife uses Ubuntu as her main gaming and online machine ...

I think blogs have served us well allowing in depth discussions and information dissemination, gadgets and cute pages don’t do that ... Facts and in depth discussion does that. What do you think has stalled health care for so long.

I prefer blogs and forums like Freerville, which I have been using for a long time. For a while I thought digg might be useful, but after a few months gave up.

I prefer taking what I know and digging deep. Then telling others what I find and discussing that.

I disagree ... Promising people free stuff had more to do with the election 2008 that tweeting. Conservative voters stayed home ... My friends follow my blogging and me theirs ...

If you look at most all the Tea Party organizing sites they are blogs.

Not at all...the FReeper I was replying to said Facebook was for children who had nothing better to do. My point is that regardless of what he thought about it, our side had better learn how to use FB and other social networking sites, or we're gonna get creamed time and time again. Because social networking sites are where the younger generations are getting their news.

All you mentioned is very good for preaching to the choir. But if we're going to win over any converts, we have to go to them. And it's not just kids on FB...it's Boomers, Xers, and Generation.commers, from what I've seen.
