Summary: Social media have evolved as a key territory for modern political campaigning. Political actors (candidates and parties) operating in this territory have to adjust their communication strategies to a new logic, allowing citizen to directly engage with and respond to political actors’ messages. Research in political campaigning has identified different context and content factors which drive or dampen user responses (likes, shares, comments). I will discuss key findings of these studies and present an example study conducted in Austria.
