Mashable introduced today Special Reports, a new editorial product that will explore the topics Mashable's community is passionate about in a long-form content series. These reports will be available on Mashable.
“Politics Transformed: The High Tech Battle For Your Vote” is the first report, consisting of 13 original articles that examine the way that digital has affected the 2012 Presidential Election and how it will continue to reshape politics, campaigning and voting in the future.
"Special Reports underscore our commitment to original, in-depth coverage of the most pressing topics in the digital era,” said Adam Ostrow, Chief Strategy Officer at Mashable. “We’re excited to debut this program with a comprehensive look at technology and social media’s impact on the 2012 election, and plan to create additional Special Reports year-round on Mashable.”
"Politics Transformed" will explore:
- The players behind the digital campaigns in Washington,
- How the campaigns are using your personal data,
- The impact of online political ads,
- The role of mobile in the elections,
- The future of electronic voting,
- How social media will shape our candidates and elections in the future, and more.
The series will be reported by Mashable’s own editorial team including Deputy Editor Chris Taylor, Editorial Director Josh Catone and US & World Reporter Alex Fitzpatrick, who recently covered the Democratic and Republican National Conventions for Mashable.
The report includes commentary from Adam Sharp, Senior Manager of Government, News and Social Innovation at Twitter; Zephyr Teachout, Associate Professor of Law at Fordham University and the former Director of Internet Organizing for Dean for America; and Dana Chisnell, one of the most sought-after ballot design experts.
