This is nothing new…political candidates make use of online social media all the time. Well, since a couple of years ago, at least. It is, by far, the easiest, fastest and free-est way of all, so of course, political candidates would use it to win in votes. So, Selectman John Anderson has his own Facebook page all set up and ready to do too. Nothing new. But Anderson’s gone ahead and added something else to it…something that is also completely free of charge.
Yup. You are right. A QR Code.

And back to John Anderson who is standing for election. Yes, he has created a QR Code page for himself and what he plans to do with the code is to lead mobile phone users to his Facebook page where he will update regularly. He will be reviewing…well, someone will if he isn’t going to…the feedback and comments provided by the public on the Facebook account, he reported.
Well, John Anderson isn’t the only one using QR Codes to connect with the general public, it was found that the police force in Stoughton Police is also utilizing QR Codes to get feedback and track patrolling police as well. The QR Codes can be found on police patrol cars.
In the news, I caught wind of some skeptical feedback about ‘why are QR Codes still around’…it is of no surprise there. Skeptics will be skeptics. But don’t you just love them? Entertaining.
