“So far, our BEE MAD @ THE GOP campaign on Facebook has 89 million impressions and has seen over 900,000 fans engaged,” said Sloan. “Every day over 30,000 UCubed fans like or share a post with their friends.

With over 115,000 activists who regularly connect with over 30 million Facebook friends, UCubed represents a significant demographic in the upcoming elections. UCubed was formed to assist the millions of unemployed and underemployed Americans, and to provide a structure that allows them to take advantage of their growing numbers.
