  21. 21. Suggestions • Social media can be the cheapest marketing tool around. Some hope it could help India move away from the current situation, where money means success in political campaigning. • Since the study targeted only the Lok sabha campaign, the target population of this study was urban youth only. • This cannot be used to draw inferences on the entire voter population in Bangalore (India). • The message of the campaign contains the ideas that the candidate wants to share with the voters. • It is to get those who agree with their ideas to support them when running for a political position.
  22. 22. Scope • The scope of social media in political campaign is not only important but it is the opportunity to be in touch with large numbers of voters quickly, constantly and at a low cost. • With the speed of communications and the numbers of people involved, the impact has to be significant because politically active people are subscribing to the candidates on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Blog and although less politically savvy people aren’t doing that, • They’re still seeing those messages when their politically active friends comment and “like” them.
  23. 23. CONCLUSION • From the above research, it can be concluded that social media has played and will continue to play a significant role in political campaigns • The research study on “Social Media and its importance in Political Campaign’’ was intended to find out the popularity about social media in political campaigning for woo newly voters. • In this research i tried to find out the political parties mainly AAP, BJP and Congress, How these parties are active on social media and how they are campaigning on the social network sites for attract voters for upcoming general elections 2014.
