Social Networks Perception Functioning as Social Democracy Improvements: Bosnia and Herzegovina Example
The revolution in the field of communication technology and new media affects the global, regional and local democratic processes of the modern/postmodern society in various ways. It is clear that the market economy is not the same as the market society, but the global crisis of knowledge and information management confronts us with new dilemmas. The question is whether and how internet and social networks changed the relationships within the political process and the new social movements. The failure of political and economic transition, as is the case in Bosnia-Herzegovina, constantly reminds us of the need to encourage thoughtful civic engagement, where users of the site networks advocate for socially responsible democracy and new forms of civic solidarity rather than market democracy. The aim of this paper is to present quantitative and qualitative results of research on the attitudes of users of social networking websites and their perception of the possibilities to strengthen social democracy in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
