Goodluck Jonathan Gets Mobile App For 2011 Presidential Campaign
As the 2011 presidential campaign gradually kicks off, a new mobile application for President Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign has been released.
The app built by Emerging Platforms Limited is available via Blackberry and iPad/iPhone devices, but also allows other internet enabled devices access.
With the Goodluck Nigeria 2011 App, you can get the latest news about his campaign, read his agenda and scorecard, watch videos, listen to music and join the movement.
The app also allows you to send a direct message to President Jonathan, and also view messages sent by other users.
If the President hasn’t been overwhelmed by an average of 2000 comments on his Facebook page, I’m guessing that he won’t be if he uses this app.
But will the President respond to the messages?
I’m not sure, but his regular Facebook updates have made references to comments by his fans. Although, some commenters feel that his words should be backed up by actions.
While some of his Facebook fans have been literally blocked from making comments on his page, it leaves one wondering how he intends to interact and connect with a youth audience that he wants to identify with for his campaign.
You can download the Goodluck Nigeria 2011 mobile app to join the transformation movement.
Thanks to @spacely for the tip.
