Politisch ungebunden, aber nicht entpolitisiert: Mit dem Digital Citizen tritt ein neuer Typ informierter Bürger auf den Plan. Aufgewachsen mit Computer, Mobiltelefon und Socialmedia-Profilen wird er über klassische Kommunikationskanäle nur peripher erreicht, sucht sich seine politischen Informationen lieber selbst zusammen – und schickt sich an, die Zukunft zu bestimmen.

The Internet has been discussed as a major agent of change for political communication and participation. One important dimension of possible effects is the influence of online-communication on participation habits of citizens. In this article, panel survey data from Germany that cover almost the first decade of this century are used in order to test causal hypotheses about this transformation process. The results highlight that new forms of political communication are mainly a complement to existing forms with little substitution effects. Additionally, the data demonstrate the strong role habitualization plays particularly in the field of political information seeking and traditional forms of political discussion and participation, while online communication still evolves with yet less fixed patterns of action.
