GROWTH OF FACEBOOK AS A TOOL OF ELECTIONEERING: REASONS AND FACTS

Dr. Paramveer Singh, Mr. Aman Deep.

Abstract
Social media has grown rapidly across the world and established itself as a redoubtable campaign tool. The reasons behind its unprecedented growth and popularity are manifold. This research tries to look into the origin of social media usage as an electioneering tool in the world and India, delves into the features responsible for its widespread diffusion, and makes it amenable to political use. The research focuses on Facebook due to its disproportionate share in the world and India's social media market. It also tries to delineate the links between social media and the deepening of democratic practices.

Key words: Social media, Facebook, Elections, Campaigning, Voters, Politicians, Digital Political Communication
