A big data analytics firm has come out with a list of politicians with the most influence on social media ahead of the 2022 elections.

Topping the list were Manila Mayor Isko Moreno and Senator Manny Pacquiao. both of them, of course, are said to be gunning for the presidency.

But how big a factor really is social media — especially Facebook — in an election campaign?
