Abstract [en]

This paper explores Swedish Parties activities on Instagram during the 2014 elections. Understanding party campaign communication as highly strategic, i.e. communication to persuade and mobilize voters in order to win the elections, we ask whether Instagram was used 1) to broadcast campaign messages, 2) to mobilize supporters, 3) to manage the party’s image, and 4) to amplify and complement other campaign material (i.e. hybrid campaign use). We conducted a quantitative content analysis of 220 party postings on Instagram, which were collected during the hot phase of the campaign. The result shows that the platform was mainly used for broadcasting rather than for mobilization. The image the parties were presenting leaned towards personalization with a strong presence of top candidates in their postings. Top candidates were primarily displayed in a political/professional context. Finally, half of the analyzed postings showed signs of hybridized campaign practices.
