Social Distraction? Social Media Use and Political Knowledge… (4/8)

Drawing on both cross-sectional and panel data from two recent United States presidential elections, this study examines how political social media use and general social media use influence political knowledge. Both analyses indicate that political social media use does not have a significant effect on political knowledge, while general social media use has a moderately negative effect on political knowledge. The authors, therefore, contend that the overall impact of social media on political knowledge is negative.
