New Study: How Photos on Pinterest Predicted the Election

New Study: How Photos on Pinterest Predicted the Election

“James,
My PhD is history, so I appreciate your final observation that images have been repeatedly used throughout history to make compelling arguments -- and certainly, since their invention, photos have been used to support or undermine particular perspectives on events and people and policies.

In fact, I wrote a book years ago that looked at war photography that essentially made that point! (Shooting War: Photography and the American Experience of Combat http://www.amazon.com/Shooting-War-Photography-American-Experience/dp/0465077773).

Thanks for your thought.

“@ "Susan Moeller"

...Never covered the war front, but I was a photojournalist as well, back in the 70's...

You take a seasoned shooter who not only knows exposure by wind velocity but is keen on human habits, he'll out distance his reporter companion by a mile or more.

Will check out your book. Looks interesting.

“Good points, we're expecting that to happen (although not certain it will). Stay tuned for an updated study on college students' apathy and interest in politics this fall!”
