Romney's Market Share Decreases Despite Social Media Growth
June 29, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Politics NewsMitt Romney's total internet market share decreased by .48% and he carries 19.88% of the total internet market share on this week's Spartan Internet Political Performance Index (SIPP Index). This means Barack Obama still holds the majority of the internet market share with 80.12%. Even though Mitt suffered a decrease in market share over the past week, online marketing firm, Spartan Internet, has found that he has been making strides in the growth of his social media following.
For month of May, Mitt Romney garnered 9% of his total Twitter followers and 9.5% of his total Facebook "Likes." These numbers are far greater than Barack Obama's 3% growth on twitter and 1.5% on Facebook.
Mitt Romney continues to gain a higher percentage of his following on Twitter and Facebook per month than Obama. However, Barack Obama's head start in 2008 is what is keeping him ahead of Mitt Romney on the SIPP Index.
