Posted by akosistella on March 19, 2010
MANILA, Philippines – Senator Benigno ‘Noynoy’ Aquino III and Senator Manny Villar are the presidential candidates in the 2010 elections that have generated the most mentions and posts on the Internet, according to a study released Wednesday by NetBooster Asia, an online marketing and advertising agency.
The study, which surveyed information about five presidential candidates, shows that the most online mudslinging and negative campaigning is posted by those Internet users discussing Villar and Aquino. The data from the survey indicates that Villar has generated the most negative sentiment online, closely followed by Aquino.
The study is a “snapshot” of social media behavior and trends, according to Marck Rimorin, Social Media Officer for Netbooster Asia. “The public should see the study as demonstrating the power of the internet,” said Rimorin, who led the team that conducted the study.
