Resumé

Is there a connection between increased use of digital media and changing patterns of political participation? This study tests how use of online media for different purposes (social
interaction, creative expression, online news use, social media news use) is related to three types of political participation. It examines whether mobilizing effects are partly indirect due
to different understandings of citizenship (dutiful, optional, individual, collective) that may be fostered by digital media use. The study is based on a survey of a sample of the Danish
population (n=1322), including data from two online survey waves and a smartphone-based media diary that documents respondents’ social media use. Results indicate support for a new
pathway to participation, but the relationship depends on whether citizens are socialized in a digital media environment.
