Computer and politics have always had a close connection. This connection will continue as time goes on. You can’t be involved in politics without always having at hand the tools that the computer provides you. And the reverse is true, you can’t use computers and technology without being involved in politics in some way.
Technology and computers play a very important role in defining the political landscape. It is increasingly important especially as voters are present in the virtual environment. You can reach them more easily if you are on social media, have a website, blog, present online. This is why it is important to not only know political terms but the glossary of computer terms as well.
Modern politics and computers mean interaction
Politicians can reach their target audience as quickly as possible and attract as many voters as possible to their side. You can’t resist politics and evolve if you don’t focus on computers and technology. The computer is very useful if you know how to understand it and use it to be as close as possible to the people who really resonate with you.
Computer technology: A tool for political actors
It is very helpful in identifying and finding those voters and political institutions. TV commercial campaigns, Facebook ads, various announcements and promises received by e-mail, all have to do with computer technology. They are clear proof that politics and computer technology are inseparable.
The most powerful methods by which you can use computer technology to your advantage as a politician are data collection and the use of digital media. The collection of granular data became a must in the following years, being a basic part of any successful political campaign. The data collected becomes useful when creating marketing campaigns. It can be useful when sending targeted political messages. This can also help when you want to cultivate relationships with “donors”.
Computer technology, political subject and campaign platform
Many politicians talk in their campaigns about technology, access to private data, online privacy, etc. The right to be forgotten is very important and has become a “hot” topic in any international campaign. Everyone is free to request the deletion of data if they wish or not to include it in certain online statistics.
