  1. Facebook Socialcode, a subsidiary of the Washington Post Company, has roots in performance marketing and advertising. Skilled front-end creative team and performance-driven analytics team allow SocialCode to run faster and smarter on day one on any Facebook campaign.

    “The study was designed to demonstrate how the world’s largest social networking platform, when used correctly, can be a powerful research
    tool for politicians and brands.

    “SocialCode conducted a randomized campaign among Facebook users in Iowa and New Hampshire to gauge the power of specific messages for seven potential contenders for the Republican presidential nomination. Between May 23 and June 4, Facebook users in these critical early voting states were asked to show support by clicking “Like” in response to randomly displayed image combinations of seven declared or prospective candidates (or a GOP elephant) with five common Republican messages.”


    “With the first primary elections for the 2012 presidential race less than a year away, full-service Facebook agency Social Code is already researching how Facebook advertising can affect actionable results in key demographic markets.

    The study specifically targeted voters in New Hampshire and Iowa, where the first primaries will take place. In these states, 69 percent
    of the population uses Facebook. Voters were shown an advertisement pairing one of the seven leading declared or prospective Republican
    candidates with one of five common Republican messages, with the option
    to like the advertisement.

    Among the contenders, Sarah Palin received the highest number of likes with both New Hampshire and Iowa Voters, regardless of the message
    with which her moniker was paired.”


    “On every message former Alaska governor Sarah Palin received the highest “Like” rate in both New Hampshire and Iowa; “Values” rank fourth
    of the five-item message list across candidates, but it’s a major driver for Palin, who remains a shadow candidate. For Palin, the 2008 GOP vice-presidential nominee, the values-oriented message performs significantly better than does a focus on the economy;


    I believe it is worth noting that the Facebook SocialCode study analyzed ALL voters (and Facebook users) who used Facebook (69%). That includes Democrats and Independents. Think about this: "Among the contenders, Sarah Palin received the highest number of likes with both New Hampshire and Iowa VOTERS"
