A history of HootSuite Enterprise command centers

The command center was put on display during the American presidential election this fall. Journalists and members of the public watched the social media election story unfold on a command center that compared the mentions and likes of both candidates. The command center made it clear that Barack Obama’s victory in the polls was accompanied by a victory in social media influence.
