Like David Bullock, who wrote a book on how Barack Obama used social media and other user generated content to help win the Presidential Election.

Bullock said "Where you had people creating songs and parodies and videos, and taping their own take on what was happening in the market place. You had all this word of mouth going, which is really what made the whole thing work."
