Routledge Companion to Social Media and Politics (Hardcover)
about this item
From blogs to Facebook and Twitter, social media increasingly plays an important role in political communication and campaigning and its impact can be felt in political interactions at the local and international level, as well as in grassroots, lobbyist, and party politics. Drawing on an international line-up of research leaders in the study of social media and politics, this companion provides an up-to-date overview of the current state of the field, including examinations of the role of social media in global politics and considering a wide variety of political activities and social media applications.
