When all the polls pointed to a Clinton victory, I’ll admit I was shocked as I watched Donald Trump win the election. As I reflected on his campaign I started drawing comparisons to selling.
In a recent interview, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff stated, “Without Twitter, you wouldn’t have President – Elect Trump” I had thought about this myself so I decided to look at the numbers. As of Nov 16, 2016, the numbers are as follows:
|Candidates||Twitter Followers||Facebook Likes on Page||Facebook Page Followers|
These numbers validate Marc Benioff’s statement however one can argue that Facebook also had a major play here.
