Does the use of the internet and social media enhance political participation of citizens? Expain
Citizens' political participation is enhanced by the usage of the internet and social media. It alters how political parties and politicians run election campaigns, communicate with voters, and form partnerships with other organizations or persons. Small groups with low resources may also be able to participate in the political process using the Internet. The attention economy is aided by social media, particularly news that is disseminated via social media sites. Because news consumption leads to political persuasion, the more people turn to social media platforms for news, the more their political views will be influenced.
