    According to CNN, some candidates for posts in Malaysia’s rulling party will be required to set up blogs in which they must introduce themselves and what they’ll do in they are elected.

    At blogging’s beginning, party politicians have said that bloggers spread lies and rumours, so this turn-around action it’s a little bit surprising.

    It seems that the power of online campaigns starts to become recognized more and more, a lot of politicians started blogging in different countries also.
    Do you think blogging could be a good tool in a campaign? I think that it all depends on the politicians’ reputation, less than what they’re writing.

    Would you use a blog in a campaign if you were a politician? :D

    Certainly, it's a great cheap way to communicate... Although I never intend to become a blood sucking politician :crazy:

    It certainly pays off, if done professionally. Barack Obama has a very good and extremely strong web media team and it covers most of social networks and web 2.0 sites. There have to be a lot of people in that team, plus all other volunteer contributors. In some profiles in his official name they've got PR7, if not even PR8!

    Well I think that was not a good idea, why? it was a waste of time and effort, all people in the whole world will know them through the use of the net but the voting system was exclusive only in their country.. so why bother doing it? If ever they made a voting poll, it was still considered null and the reason is already mentioned. :dance2:
