A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Choice Outstanding Academic Title of 2016 From the presidential race to the battle for the office of New York City mayor, American political candidates approach to new media strategy is increasingly what makes or breaks their campaign. Targeted outreach on Facebook and Twitter, placement of a well-timed viral ad, and the ability to roll with the memes, flame wars, and downvotes that might spring from ordinary citizens engagement with the issues-these skills are heralded as crucial for anyone hoping to get their views heard in a chaotic election cycle. But just how effective are the kinds of media strategies that American politicians employ? And what effect, if any, do citizen-created political media have on the tide of public opinion? In Controlling the Message, Farrar-Myers and Vaughn curate a series of case studies that use real-time original research from the 2012 election season to explore how politicians and ordinary citizens use and consume new media during political campaigns.Broken down into sections that examine new media strategy from the highest echelons of campaign management all the way down to passive citizen engagement with campaign issues in places like online comment forums, the book ultimately reveals that political messaging in today s diverse new media landscape is a fragile, unpredictable, and sometimes futile process. The result is a collection that both interprets important historical data from a watershed campaign season and also explains myriad approaches to political campaign media scholarship-an ideal volume for students, scholars, and political analysts alike.

Critique:

?[T]he book is a great resource book for the role of social media in political campaigns with a nuanced view and solid empirical data to back up their claims.? -Communication Booknotes Quarterly

?The research reported in
this comprehensive volume provides a snapshot of an important point in the
evolution of American political campaigns. The book?s examination of the
production and effects of social media messages will help us understand their
role in contemporary campaigns. Most importantly, the research helps the
discipline define the practical limits of social media influence and identify
areas for future research.?-David Tewksbury,co-author of News on the Internet: Information and Citizenship in the 21st Century

"The 2012 presidential and congressional races serve as a laboratory for the scholars in this volume, who contribute 13 chapters on the impact of social media (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, blogs, and online forums) on these elections...[P]olitical scientists specializing in this emerging field will appreciate the rigor of these studies"-Library Journal

"Much has been made of President Barack Obama's strategy on social media...it's an interesting examination at a time when pundits are already discussing that the last time potential GOP candidate Jeb Bush ran for office (2002's Florida gubernatorial election), neither Twitter nor Facebook existed."-Library Journal

?Controlling the Message brings valuable data and sharp analysis to bear on timely, important questions.?-International Journal of Communication

"This book is well researched and is a high quality addition to the existing literature on campaign
communications. The contributors do an excellent job relying on current research in the field while
presenting new and important data. The timeliness of the research throughout makes it a
solid contribution, particularly with the new data provided on various forms of social media use during
the most recent presidential campaign."-Lori Cox Han,author of New Directions in the American Presidency

?This is an indispensable book for those studying politics and social media.  This is especially the case given the diversity of research strategies and subject matter examined throughout the text.  Summing Up: Highly recommended.?-Choice
