One of the election advocacies I supported recently is the Yahoo! #YourPurpleThumb campaign. This is where opinions of the Yahoo! Philippines users community are encouraged to be shared and let their voices be heard.

Last February, in the Yahoo! Philippines Purple Thumb launch, I also talked about the significance of social media in the coming elections.

This is part of Yahoo! Purple Thumb efforts in reporting election developments in the community by tapping the users also in contributing content.

There are many ways that you can participate and this is all done through Yahoo! Meme. This includes:
  • Share why you are voting this coming elections. Add the #YourPurpleThumb to make your opinion be part of those who shared their perspective.
  • If you found interesting news item, video, and audio clips in relation to the elections, share them. Make sure to add the #PurpleThumb hash tag at the end of your Yahoo! Meme post to make it visible to everyone monitoring election related content shared in the site.
You might wonder why Yahoo! Meme. The site is designed for content sharing without risking alteration of the original post. It also allows you to follow other people and build your own following as well. (related post: Make Yahoo! Meme work for you)

See you in the community! Let me know your Yahoo! Meme url and will follow you there.
