Knowledge of (Social Media, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Qzone, Habbo, Renren, Windows Live Spaces, Bebo, Tagged, Orkut, Friendster, Badoo, hi5, Foursquare, Google+, Blogs,RSS Feeds, Texting, Mobile, Search Engine Optimization, Video, Rich Media, web analytics, Google Analytics, WebTrends, Omniture)

Orkut and Friendster in particular have been little used in the United States for years, but perhaps the convention committee wants to make sure Democratic Party members living in India and Brazil stay in touch.
