New social media could change public perception at 2016's political conventions

NH1.com

If you're under 30, you're probably using Snapchat or some other social networking medium to interact with followers. Thanks to social media, this year’s political conventions are being covered in a whole new way that is instantaneous and personal.

Millennials, in particular, are getting their news and information from Facebook Live, Twitter, and Snapchat.

Snapchat allows users to send pictures and short video clips directly to their friends, allowing them to interact and experience the convention in real time.

Since some of these social media platforms weren't available during the last presidential race, it’s unclear how, or if, they'll change the public’s perception of the political process and conventions.

Through the lens of thousands of delegates and attendees, people at home are getting a first hand glimpse of what's happening here.
