DHAKA, August 16, 2016 – U.S. Embassy Dhaka will host its fourth Road to the White House Facebook chat on August 16 about Social Media in Campaigns. Starting on May 10 and running through the presidential inauguration in January 2017, the Embassy is hosting a U.S. expert each month who will conduct a one-hour Facebook chat on a specific election-related topic.
Join us for our August 16 election chat on Social Media in Campaigns at 7 pm. The chat will feature Chris Talbot, the founder and President of Talbot Digital, and an expert on digital marketing in politics. His firm provides online communications and media strategy, message development and implementation, social media management, online advertising, tracking and analysis. Recent client successes include new media efforts for statewide campaigns, such as Martin O’Malley’s re-election as Governor of Maryland; national efforts like Rock The Vote’s historic online voter registration; corporate advocacy on behalf of Fortune 100 companies; and global strategies that include consulting for the US Department of State. Prior to this Talbot worked with Google’s Elections & Issue Advocacy team in Washington, where he provided online strategy counsel and campaign management to political consultants, issue groups, and candidates for federal and statewide office. Following 2008, Chris Talbot developed effective tactics to translate the digital success of a presidential race into valuable tools for advocacy campaigns and statewide office seekers.
