winning votes on the internet these days election campaigning also happens online political parties use social media to try and sway voters but are people's decisions actually influenced this way. germany's green party coordinated strategies for their most recent election campaign here at the headquarters in berlin in the final weeks before the election the party. line advertising about half of their total advertising budget went towards online promotion. led the digital election campaign the last forecasts before the vote predicted a huge loss for his party. in the week before the election we managed to achieve considerable exposure and presence for the greens on social media and on the net in general so that's all and i think this last minute swing. the difference between
the last polls before the election and the actual election results definitely had something to do with increased exposure. to. the green party won slightly more votes than they did in twenty thirteen they're now poised to be potential coalition partners is this success the result of online campaigning political consultant johan is here yet is skeptical. that's what. we have so far about the effect of digital campaigning is that it's very disappointing for political parties invest a lot of money in it but the impact is dubious minnes and survival after. supporting that opinion a study from the us reports that only one out of two hundred fifty facebook users is influenced by election advertisements the direct interaction is much more successful one out of every fourteen voters can apparently be convinced so knocking on doors may still be necessary but for this election it was given a modern day twist. this year parties used the old fashioned method of door to door

liberal f.d.p. party also has a considerable online presence he seeks to engage directly with his followers the campaign to are also featured plenty of selfies and videos. but can young voters really be reached on line. stuff from facebook didn't influence may have this i already have an idea about who i want to vote for and who i don't. even know online campaigning has never significantly influenced an election year how does he thinks political parties won't be able to escape social media. the longer social media as long as social media remains an important method of communication and still influences daily interaction it will also be important for political communication you have to take your message where the people are. currently that's on the big social networks like facebook twitter and instagram facebook or twitter
instagram. all of the parties still have a lot to learn before they can thrive in the digital age. shift as better strategy is needed. and now it's time for the share to ranking the most attractive cities for startups. in fifth place the swedish capital the viking era is long gone today ideas are forged here the study comes from nest pick an aggregator website for apartment rentals they investigated the startup ability of hundreds of cities the criteria included income social services and quality of life. for its high pace of cash for an extra portion of meatballs. is goes to. sitting in a cafe and working away on projects that typical startup picture the german capital is a cheap city to. and it gives every business idea
