Political Discourse on the Platform of New Media: An Analysis into People's Quotient of Involvement

Akanksha Shukla


The current paper focuses on the exact levels of involvement of people in political discourse through the New Media. Technology has facilitated availability of new and varied forums of discussion. As soon as a new agenda is brought to the public glare with constant priming of the issue by the media, there ensues another race of panel discussions, and debates  which form the base of the much touted discussion forum of social network sites. A large amount of software is generated and people ‘share’, ‘comment’ or add their own perceptions to the issue at hand. The moot question remains about the level of involvement, in letter and spirit of the millions who throng the chat rooms. An attempt has been made to understand the exact association and involvement of the people, along with the observation on the kind of vocabulary and language that has replaced the traditional British approach to English language and the resultant evolution of the regional language.

Keywords: Political discourse, New Media, social media, language.
