It is true that many politicians use social media platforms to share content but do not engage with their followers by responding to comments and messages. This is a missed opportunity for politicians to connect with their constituents and build a stronger relationship with them.
Politicians should consider investing in social media training and hiring dedicated staff to manage their social media accounts. This can help to ensure that social media is used effectively to engage with constituents and build a strong online presence.
