Hi!
The instructions are as follows:
“Further the dialogue by providing more information and clarification. Minimum of 1 scholarly source required”.
The below is the peer`s response:
“The role of the government and politics is to ensure that the peoples` voice is heard. According to Greenberg & Page (2018), people learn about politics over the course of their life. As children we grow up and hear things our elders say regarding politics and tend to base our party choice on that. As we grow older and have more exposure to politics as independent adults, we can formulate our choice based on our own interpretation of campaigns, speeches, and promises. Social media is a growing avenue for political campaigns and the influence it has on the population can be beneficial for the potential candidate.
It was indicated by Abdulsamad et al., (2019) that social media has benefited the political parties in many ways since 2008. By using social medial political campaigns have little restriction as to what messages can be conveyed unlike the restrictions set forth by television broadcasts. Social media also allows engagement with their audience so there is more opinion and viewpoints to be considered. I feel that this can be beneficial if some people need clarity on a message that was conveyed by a party they support. I also think that without the restrictions on social media political candidates can reveal their true personalities which may help or hinder their supporters. It allows the true candidate to come forth and interact with the public behind a screen rather than by televised speeches.
The other benefit to social media is the tracking done by websites. If you happen to click on a particular ad or shop for a specific item, it continues to show up while you browse social media. This could be beneficial for a campaign ad because if one is viewed then the ability to target that person with specific campaign content could potentially influence their opinion. These campaign ads can be interactive, attention grabbing and to the point.
The last benefit that I will touch on is for the younger generation and generations yet to come. TV, radio, and newspapers are becoming a thing of the past or at least not as popular to these young adults. According to the World Economic Forum (2022), people in the United States spend approximately 2 hours and 14 minutes per day on social media. The age that people start using social media is becoming younger and younger. I think that political campaigns will target people more easily by use of social media. For myself I know that I currently don`t have a TV subscription at all. What I learn about what is going on in the world, country or with the government is all done by social media or alerts on my phone. As technology continues to advance, I think these things will become more popular.”
