Abstract: Organized advocacy groups are increasingly turning to digital analytics in order to gauge supporter interest, monitor public sentiment, experiment with new tactics, and craft strategies that resonate in the new media environment. The impact of digital media in the political arena occurs both through the new types of speech it supports and the new types of listening and learning that it enables. In his new book, Analytic Activism, Dave Karpf explores how digital media fits into advocacy campaigning, what it is useful for, what its limitations are, and how it is changing the political landscape in 2017 and beyond.
