Abstract
Technology has changed rapidly and with the change in technology the trends of people around the world have also changed. People all over the world have started to use the social media greatly. Thailand is no exception. With the ever-increasing influence of social media Bangkok has become one of the highest using Facebook population. Political education was however, first very much limited in the country but with the advent of technology and excessive usage of the Internet and social media a vast and diverse change has been noticed in the political education of Thailand. The population of Thailand now has more understanding of the meaning of democracy. However, democracy is viewed differently in the rural and the urban areas. The social media has in many ways affected the knowledge of the people regarding the politics in Thailand. The citizens of Thailand now have that information which they did not have before about the politics and political personalities in Thailand. However, the effect is not only positive but has negative effects too thus increasing the cold war between the red shorts and the yellow shirts in Thailand. A in depth analysis of the situation is done as to see how the social media effects the youth and politics and citizens of Thailand.

Research Background
Thailand’s Social Media Battleground
In recent years plenty of politicians in Thailand have started to use social media to promote politics. However, the urban population of Thailand has been using the social media to information about politics where as the rural population do not have much of an access to the social media. A survey was carried out in the year 2012 which showed that only one third of the Thailand's population had an access to the Internet. It was not until the 1990's that the media became free in Thailand. Before that the media came under the military dictatorship.

However, they could not control the Internet and social media where everyone could voice their opinions and address and discuss different matters (Paireepairit, 2012). The social media during this time became an instant connection with the public as people linked their blogs with their facebook and twitter accounts. In this way they would upload latest pictures and news of the political issues. As a result the military government had to find out away to control the access of Thai people to the Internet. Thus, thousands of websites had been blocked by the government excluding the social media websites (Park, 2014). In 2014 Facebook went down for a couple of hours, which created a negative air. However, it was up running after a few hours but proved that putting the social media down would not have any positive outcomes (Millward, 2013). Th...
