By Don Reisinger | Posted 10-29-2010
It's probably no surprise that former HP CEO Carly Fiorina (R-California) was named one of the top three most Web-savvy candidates running for a U.S. Senate seat on Election Day, Nov. 2. But, you may be shocked to learn that John McCain (R-Arizona) scores a perfect "10," making him the No. 1 most Web-savvy Senate candidate, according to a recent study from PeekYou. Tech generation gap be damned. PeekYou is a people search engine that aggregates online information from individuals around the globe. The study ranks the Web presence of this season's Senate candidates on a scale of 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest). The rating, called a PeekScore, measures each candidate's "digital footprint and online social presence." Only 23 Senate candidates receive a PeekScore of 7 or higher. This list is not a ranking by ability, endorsements or popularity, according to PeekYou.
