Past the recent twirl around President Obama’s victory, we all could stare the invisible victory of social agents too. Disguising, intruding, tracking the next voice, social media tactics revealed true astonishing functions. “some goodies with no future” some says, “boring timelines and wasting time” others shout. Well, little rivers make big seas. And in this history, the first (Obama), beat the second, far enough. All those little intentions create an invisible force, like a prowling wave, rising, as far as noone could see it approaching. I hope French politics will take some lessons from this, in the aim of spreading use of social media, but to be more modern and in our times, by the way. This could be an “undust” operation for conservatives methods, and progress the explaination for corporations to be more friendly with social tools. As a matter of fact, buzz went in too, because of derivate effects of bulk passion and crowded wires. SearchGurus said it there, and I must admit it convinced me in a short second. Help of Chris Hugues from Facebook, and Rahaf Harfoush, provided the result…global, local, power and voice to people with new wires and ways of communication, those which came more natural for lots of trendy and young electors.

In fact every parts were joined, first, to a forecasted result. Why?

Politics has always been so much boring and sometime useless the people deserted interest and involvement for that matter. But, as if to say and in our daily lives, “a man can make alone all the work and trace the path”, that means that when we find the good one, faith is back. And in politics, as in social media, you can find the good guru, just like an elevator pitch that can burst you far beyond your goal. Faith, belief, trust. values that can give you extra powers. You just have to find the good one, and even you can choose more than one, but these coach. When you head to the poll zones, you have for most of you, already decided, who you’re going to choose, who of them is going to give you the light and coach your life.

It was really natural, people with such ‘heart shout’ for Obama, suffocated economics and fed up minds, that community had a real desire of expression. These are the fact in social media fields with the essence of social media power. And yes politics could use it daily now, in the way it provides new kinds of voices and explore brand new reactions. Even gamers started what we called “communities” by playing in several universes (no they did not encountered politics, but more dangerous creatures ;-), but in the fill of war and the art of mesuring themselves, they learned to fight with the best. No politic game is not what we can call “war”, but it reveals all the characters : the hero, the danger, friends and opposite camp.

Invite your friends in these worlds, find your hero and your way, and draw the line for a future collaboration, elevating yourself and others to new frontiers : set the new line for these “natural behaviors”, now politic world can share with us what people found since years: new kind of shared, talked communication. Web power to the people. from “zero-to-politic” to “politic 2.0”.
