Il voto si decide anche sui social network

Uno studio, pubbicato on line su Nature,  dedicato agli elettori USA durante l'election day del 2010 ha dimostrato che le discussioni e la propaganda politica sui social network concorrono alla formazione della decisione di  voto. Non è molto, ma non è neppure poco. 

The study, published online on Wednesday by the journal Nature, suggests that a special “get out the vote” message, showing each user pictures of friends who said they had already voted, generated 340,000 additional votes nationwide — whether for Democrats or Republicans, the researchers could not determine. The scientists, from Facebook and the University of California, San Diego, said they believed the study was the first to show that social networks could have at least some impact on elections, and they added that the findings could have implications far beyond voting.
