At present, social media's infiltration and influence on politics are becoming increasingly prominent, which is changing the model of people's political participation in various countries, the discourse space of international politics, and the ability of individual politics to act. This article takes the social movements taking place at home and abroad in recent years as a case, from the perspective of political communication, studies the influence of social media on political communication, analyzes the dual effects of social media in political communication and public political participation, and points out social media critically and the “communication dilemma” in political communication.
