The relationship between technology use and political activism is significant but not as strong. One possible implication of this result, which is also supported by the technology usage results, is that we have yet to fully leverage technologies that may increase involvement in the political process. The results of the study indicate that technology can be utilized to influence political interest and political activism. The fact that it is possible to expand technology use in politics both by fully realizing the use of new technologies and getting more individuals to use this technology indicates that the influence of technology in politics will only increase. It was previously noted that technology can change the means by which freedom of choice is attained and can help reshape the political interests and goals of various parties in a political system. We also believe that the purpose of using technology in the political arena is to inform, involve, and mobilize large groups of people for a particular cause. The same out comes are desired for many other altruistic purposes.
