Abstract This paper looks at the links between educating people and getting involved in politics to show how social media can help these areas. This study looks into how online social networks make it easier for people to get involved in politics in ways other than voting. This study looks at how social media affects democratic accountability, information sharing, and public participation by using ideas from organisational studies, media studies, and political science. This study looks into how young Jordanians' use of social media affects their voting habits, their membership in political groups, and their involvement in protests. This study uses quantitative analysis of poll data to show that among Jordanian teens and young adults aged 18 to 30, there are strong links between being politically active and using social media. The results show that social media can help young people become more publicly active, informed, and involved. However, polarisation and false information can also make this harder. Because gender affects the link between political participation and social media use, it is important to use targeted strategies that aim to reduce demographic differences. According to the study, social media can have an effect on current politics. It also calls for smart use of social media to avoid any bad effects.
Keywords Social media, political engagement, civic participation, youth activism, information dissemination.
