The Election Aftermath:  Insights and Analysis

#GE16 was a truly digital campaign that saw traditional parties compete with new parties and traditional media collide with social platforms.  Throughout the campaign, a range of data tools have tracked coverage and monitored engagement - so what are the takeaways?

  • What stories and parties made an impact?

  • Which media outlets and platforms sustained the most engagement?

  • How did the party and media strategies play out and compare?

  • And what does it all mean for future campaigns?
