Abstract [en]

Recent conceptualizations of a “Web 2.0” focusing on enabling user-generated contenthas grown increasingly common in public discourse and among researchers. While hopes have generallybeen high regarding political use of online interactivity, most research projects on the topic haveproduced results contrary to these hopes. Most citizens seem to be content with staying consumers,not assuming more active roles. Similarly, most political actors have assumed a somewhat conservativestance to the Internet medium. This article presents a review of research done regarding online politicalcommunication and provides further theoretical insights into these patterns of “non-use” by employingstructuration theory as developed by Anthony Giddens and Wanda J. Orlikowski.
