A new survey shows that Facebook messages may be the most effective way to get young people to vote, WORLD News Service reports. According to the survey by nonprofit group Generation Opportunity, 66 percent of 18- to 29-year-olds said they would be most likely to vote when reminded through Facebook messages. Fifty-eight percent said text messages would be the best way to reach them, followed by 38 percent who preferred email messages, 28 percent who preferred public service announcements and 13 percent who preferred phone calls. "Our data underscores the ongoing power of social media and text messaging among [this] generation," said Generation Opportunity president Paul T. Conway. Another part of the same survey showed that 69 percent of respondents believe the current leaders in federal government fail to represent their interests.
