Young People, Internet Use, and Political Participation (11/11)

Authors Bakker and De Vreese study how the younger generation engages in politics and find that participation may look different than from previous generations where participants were expected to show up at meetings, declare party affiliation and vote on election days. Younger generations seem less inclined to participate in traditional ways but Bakker and De Vreese examine several hypotheses aimed at understanding how political messaging is consumed on social media versus more traditional avenues and how this consumption translates into engagement.
