Abstract:

The present study examines the joint impacts of communication practices and individual psychological traits, i.e., motivation, political efficacy, and relative deprivation, on civic engagement. An online survey (n=490) was implemented in mainland China via multiple channels. Results indicate that both new media and conventional media have effects on civic engagement; the pressure from social networks is positively related to offline civic engagement, while online civic behavior is significantly enhanced by the motivation of emotion; relative deprivation is negatively associated with online civic participation. Path analysis reveals that the impact of news use on civic engagement via conventional media was mediated by political orientations. Meanwhile, the motivation of social relationship mediated the effects of reading news via new media on offline civic engagement.
