    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; political participation; social network sites; social media; Web 2.0; political mobilization; social movements; political parties; democratic theory;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Kan sociala nätverkssajter eller sociala medier som Facebook och Twitter göra att det politiska deltagandet i samhället blir med jämlikt - både med avseende på vilka personer som deltar och med avseende på hur själva engagemanget organiseras? Denna avhandling innehåller sex artiklar som studerar detta med tyngdpunkt på politiskt deltagande i Sverige, samt en introduktionsartikel (eller kappa) som sammanfattar de viktigaste argumenten i artiklarna och försöker ge en övergripande bild av det vetenskapliga problemet. Avhandlingens slutsatser kan sammanfattas sålunda: att man kan använda sociala nätverkssajter för att engagera sig politiskt tycks inte leda till att lågutbildade eller sådana som är mindre intresserade av politik än andra plötsligt engagerar sig.
