Multidimensions of Social Capital and Their Relationships to News Media Use

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Social capital’s multidimensional aspect was examined in relation to news media use based on American National Election Studies (ANES) panel data. Although previous researchers identified engagement and trust as two major dimensions of social capital, they did not distinguish between two separate spheres—political and nonpolitical—in which the two dimensions are observed. In the current study, we differentiate the concept of social capital along engagement-trust and political-nonpolitical dimensions to explore the influence of news media use on those separate dimensions. The findings empirically confirm a conceptual distinction between political and nonpolitical dimensions of social capital. The engagement-trust relationship is significant only within either a political or a nonpolitical dimension separately, with no significant relationship found across the two dimensions. Political engagement, for example, affects political trust rather than nonpolitical civic engagement. Both TV news and newspaper use contribute to an increase in political and nonpolitical engagement, but fail to affect trust building in politics and among people in general.
