United States College Students’ Social Media Use and Online Political Participation

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



Abstract:

After Election 2012, 4,556 college students were surveyed to investigate which elements of social media use predict online political participation. Structural equation modeling and hierarchical multiple regression results showed that political uses of Facebook and Twitter, political self-efficacy, online social capital, and group participation were positive predictors of online political participation. Extensive Facebook and Twitter use was a negative predictor, and social trust did not directly influence participation. Implications for research and practice are discussed.
