Social Media Has Little Impact on Congress
From K Street Café:
Recently, Roll Call published More Members Are Using Social Media To Interact With Their Constituents. It is fantastic that Representatives and Senators are paying more attention to social media. In fact, setting up Twitter and Facebook accounts was one of the first official actions for many new members of the 113th Congress.
Despite rapid adoption, my observations in working with over 125 Congressional offices align with a study released by the Congressional Management Foundation in 2011. Basically, social media is not viewed as influential as other traditional methods of communications between constituents and their elected officials.
If social media engagement is on the rise, why doesn’t it have greater influence on Congress?
