ABC News Partners With Facebook for 2008 Election Coverage

Nov 26, 2007  •  Post A Comment

ABC News struck a partnership with trendy social-networking site Facebook to provide political and debate information for the 2008 election.
The deal is the latest in a series of linkups between old media and new media for the elections. CNN has partnered with YouTube to air debates, while MySpace has teamed with MTV to present a “presidential dialogue series” featuring presidential hopefuls.
Under the ABC-Facebook deal, Facebook will offer an application to its 56 million users that includes tools for supporting the candidates, discussing the campaign and featuring ABC news political content and stories from the campaign. The application will include debate groups, up-to-the-minute news and video and online surveys of Facebook users.
Facebook is growing fast and now commands 1% of all US Internet traffic, double a year ago, according to audience measurement firm Hitwise.
The social-networking site, however, has come under fire in recent days for a new application called Beacon, part of Facebook’s new ad platform that publishes information on a user’s purchases to his or her friends list.

  2. Hello, Your site is good and you’ve got the attitude and the right style. This is why I disagree with the gurus when they say: “The Money Is In The List”. The money is not in the list because many lists drive very little traffic with zero conversion. Others drive a lot of traffic with very little conversions. The truth of the matter is that Traffic is King (i.e. traffic that easily converts to sales), and good quality leads drive quality traffic. This is why I provide, free of charge, 250Million Global Optin Leads to all my members, Plus 400,000 Fresh Optin Leads every month, all free. They also have access to powerful training materials on Email Advertising, Search Engine Optimization and Google Adword Advertising.

  21. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favorcheap shirt wholesale.
