ICB: Time To Embrace Social Media

Idaho Conservative Blogger ended his comment re: the Idaho Family Forum with this comment: “If we want the younger generation to join us we must embrace the way they communicate and we must stop with these same old, sleepy fundraisers done the same we have always done them and expect to succeed.  What’s wrong with reaching out via social media and spicing up our fundraisers and gatherings?  Nothing.  There is a lot wrong with ignoring the inevitable, times have changed.  The generation behind us communicates in ways we never thought of when we were younger.  Embrace it, embrace the younger generation and do what is necessary to speak to them on their turf. They will listen if we try. ICB is proof.  I get email all the time from high school and college students.” More here.

Question: Which major political party does a better job communicating through the social media?
