It is no secret that the rise of social media platforms and how they affect the public has been a topic of interest to academics and the average person. In the past presidential election cycle (particularly in the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic), there has been much discourse surrounding the interaction between social media and the sharing of information, credibility of news sources, community involvement, and political discourse. Using publicly available data through the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (2013), this study aims to look for differences in personal importance of the level of community involvement based on preferred political news sources, as well as examine the relationship between reported importance of the level of community involvement and region.
