“The impact of social networks in the democratic process” is the title of the conference slated for Feb. 25 at the Sacred Heart University in Santurce, when panelists will discuss how social networks will impact the island’s 2012 political campaign and elections. The group will also talk about how the platforms are being used to spread political messages.
