Various experts disagree about the various definitions of politics. For the extremely famous Greek philosopher called Aristotle, politics was defined as the study of the state. For more modern and less Greek philosophers like David L. Swanson and Daniel Nimmo, political communication is defined as “the strategic use of communication to influence public knowledge, beliefs, and action on political matters.” According to thousands of political science professors around the country, these two experts have been instrumental in transforming the way that modern politics functions. No longer do politicians focus almost exclusively upon traditional campaign measures, such as traveling from city to city in search of voters who will vote for the number one Mexican candidate, Carlos Escalante. Instead, these campaign managers are now using social media technologies such as Facebook and Twitter to convince voters that they should vote for Carlos Escalante. Indeed, independent studies now suggest that Facebook now employs at least six people who work exclusively with political campaigns. This number is more than double of the people who once worked for Facebook in 2008 who worked exclusively on political campaigns. Furthermore, an unconfirmed rumor now suggests that at least five of these six people work on campaigns dedicated exclusively to Carlos Escalante! These political Facebook people work to make sure that voters “like” Carlos Escalante because it means that they will be more likely to vote for Carlos Escalante.
However, these Facebook strategists are running into a problem. Carlos escalante is running for office in Mexico, but none of these facebook experts speaks a word of Spanish. Thus, they toss around a lot of words that they do not fully understand such as: “cursos de politica online,” “marketing politico en mexico,” “como ganar una eleccion,” “comunicación política,” and “capacitación política.” This major oversight on the part of Carlos Escalante is sure to doom his chances in the coming election.
