The American people has spoken. Barack Obama was re-elected and will remain as the President of the United States for the next four years. Similar to what occured back in 2008, Social Media was a key component of the political campaign, for both sides. And if we think about what changed in the past four years, in terms of social web, it’s easy to figure out why this was one of the top election-related subjects that inspired the creation of infographics.

We picked a few to show how important was Social Media in the 2012 election, but you want to check other infographics about the presidential race, we have over 200 on our Pinterest Board – that might be a good start :)
