Elections 2024: Social media opinions on the elections

We compiled a collection of posts from TikTok and Instagram about the 2024 elections as numerous social media users have shared their advice and opinions online ahead of the 2024 South African elections.

AN interesting phenomenon that has come about with the dawn of the digital age is people’s participation in political conversation online. Social media users can now share their opinions about the upcoming South African elections, debate important issues and offer advice to fellow voters across various apps and platforms.

South Africans have taken their frustrations, apprehensions and opinions online, and conversations about which party deserves the most support, the pros and cons of each party and summaries of party manifestos have been ongoing for months. It seems now, more than ever, people can make their voices heard and, with the help of the internet, have become more active players in the political zeitgeist.

We collected some videos made by fellow South Africans sharing their opinions and reacting to the 2024 South African elections.
