My name is Tristan Hotham, I am a researcher and writer. I research social media and politics, I consult upon digital media’s impact upon the world and how to research social media. I am the Founder of the Social Media Research Centre, a research house and consultancy that seeks to make social media research better.
Its 10 years since Obama advertised within games such as Burnout. Political advertisements within games has been sporadic. However recently in 2018 Doug Ford, a politician labelled the Canadian Trump, took out Xbox adverts. It appears that political advertising within games will become normality, given demographics and the importance of the market for advertisers.
