RNC seeks to turn Facebook into a political tool

in Uncategorized by

The RNC “is preparing to launch a new Facebook tool that lets users share news, talking points and the latest updates about the presidential campaign with their friends,” CNN reports.

“Republicans using the application will be able do the work usually reserved for campaign offices simply by logging into Facebook from their personal computers… They can fill out and submit absentee ballot applications, see early voting deadlines, donate to the party or inform their friends about upcoming campaign event… all while never leaving Facebook. And simply by clicking a button, a user’s phone will ring and automatically re-connect them, via RNC headquarters, to targeted voters in key states.”
