Casting Youth as Information Leaders: Social Media in Latino Families and Implications for Mobilization

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



Abstract:

Promotion of the DREAM Act during the 2012 campaign presented an opportunity to examine how social media might cast young adults in the role of information leaders in Latino families. Despite widespread use of social media and interest in the DREAM Act, Latinos lagged behind non-Latinos in voting and in discussion about politics with family and friends. We discuss how mobilization efforts in future elections can harness new media by recruiting youth as information leaders.
