The Media and Their Use of Opinion Polls: Reflecting and Shaping Public Opinion
Social media use in politics refers to the use of online social media platforms in political processes and activities. Political processes and activities include all activities that pertain to the governance of a country or area. This includes political organization , global politics , political corruption , political parties , and political values. The internet has created channels of communication that play a key role in circulating news, and social media has the power to change not just the message, but the dynamics of political corruption, values, and the dynamics of conflict in politics.

New media, including social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, can enhance people's access to political information. Social media platforms and the internet have facilitated the dissemination of political information that counters mainstream media tactics that are often centralized and top-down, and include high barriers to entry.
This virtual issue of Public Opinion Quarterly brings together scholarship that examines news media's coverage of public opinion polls.

Change in Societal Institutions pp Cite as. Although the concept of institution enjoys wide use in American sociology, it has different implications for different theoretical traditions. Institutions fulfill macrosocietal functions in structural theories, serve ideology and hegemony according to critical theories, and are continuously created, modified, and adapted by individuals under action theories contrary to the tendency to reify institutions as given or unchanging. In its fullest sense, the concept of institution embraces all three of these levels of social control—those of processor, program, and processing, respectively. Unable to display preview.
