The tecnique is Empowerment, with the practice of Mobilizing. On the H. Clinton campaign site, she offers many tools for site visitor’s to take actions on their own, including asking a friend to make a donation, contacting the media by writing a letter to the editor or calling a local radio station to give reinforcement on the issues, and there is also an option to start a sign up sheet to recruit volunteers to help in Clinton’s campaign. Plus a few other tools to get visitor’s to take actions on their own.

The tecnique is Position Taking, and the practice is informing. A page on George Allen’s (VAS) site, gives the information of his position on the issues (i.e. budget, environment, guns, energy, ect.).

His opponent Jim Webb (VAS), offers a comparison from his campaign site on the issues between himself and Allen, as another mean of informing.

The practice shown is Involving. Here the web-based interaction is Bob Johnson’s latest poll, where he asks site visitors to vote on “Do you think special interest groups have too much influence on government?”. The transaction of the poll involves the mediation of relationships between site visitor’s and the producer to help settle the dispute with special interest groups.

The practice shown is Connecting. The link off of Faso for Governor campaign page, http://johnfaso2006.com/content/page/id/10, leads to the Lt. Governor page for Vanderhoof. On this site, the Lt. Governor mentions John Faso multiple times enforcing their team effort. When you click on press releases off the Vanderhoof page, it immediatly takes you back to the John Faso campaign site.
