Paladino Gets Press But Cuomo Has Facebook Fans

Overall stats as of October 28, 1p.m.

No need to say it (but we will) – social media is having a big impact on this year’s election. AllFacebook has launched the Election 2010 Tracker, which follows the number of Facebook fans that candidates across Congressional and gubernatorial races are racking up.

In New York, it’s been non-stop news about Carl Paladino (R), from his run in with a New York Post reporter to his anti-gay speech in Brooklyn. But online, Andrew Cuomo (D) has nearly double the Facebook fans with 56,000 versus 28,367. Overall however, Republicans nationwide, particularly those out West, have been getting the most fans.

Even if you are a fan, remember to vote on Tuesday.
