and then to actual
1. All media use variables include only one item.
Only intensity, no attention and motivation
2. There is only exposure but not selective exposure variable.
Selective exposure is about opinion reinforcement
3. Small sample size may result in more insignificant findings.
US sample size: 168, 215
4. Should have done a panel study to examine causal links.
Internet use leads to collective action

Conclusion and Discussion
Thesis by Michael Chan Presented by Zoe Zhao
Intergroup participatory behaviors
RQ1: Is individual efficacy a unique dimension of political efficacy?
H1: There will be a positive relationship between Internet news use and intergroup participatory actions.
H2: Individual efficacy will accentuate the effects of Internet news use on intergroup participatory actions.
H3: Collective efficacy will accentuate the effects of Internet news use on intergroup participatory actions.
H4: Social identity will accentuate the effects of Internet news use on intergroup participatory actions.
H5: Social identity gratifications of Internet news use will accentuate the relationship between social identity and intergroup participatory actions.
In the opposite direction
Even when other pertinent variables are statistically controlled, the use of the Internet was positively related to most intergroup participatory actions in both U.S. and Hong Kong samples.
Provide cross-cultural support for the potential mobilizing effect of the Internet news exposure and its impact on a variety of intergroup participatory actions.
Collective efficacy predicted all participatory behaviors in HK while individual efficacy was significant for all participatory behaviors in US.
Lower external efficacy predict voting and protest intention behaviors in HK.
Moderating role of efficacy:
efficacy accentuates the relationship between Internet news usage and voting intention in HK.
Collective efficacy accentuates the effects of Internet news use on participatory behaviors in both HK and US.
Media framing: Power of numbers
Moderating role of social identity
Increased party identification did not accentuate the relationship between Internet news and vote intention.
Non-election years/limited online political content
Occupy Movement identification accentuates the effects of Internet news use on intention to participate in both HK and US.
