Lack of authenticity. While everyone realizes that candidates can’t write every update on Facebook or every tweet on Twitter, the candidate must actively engage on a regular basis on at least one Social Media channel.

You don’t have to visit every small town multiple times in order to connect with them. Get a Smartphone regardless of your technological neanderthalism and practice with friends and family before connecting with your constituents. Learn from their feedback.
