1. At #ICA20 our brilliant research team will speak about topics such as news inequalities, news literacy, populism and social norms.

🧶A few insights in this thread
📱Titles and abstracts in the link below… Image
2. Concern over the spread of misinformation on social media has amplified calls to improve news literacy. @annisch, @dragz and @rasmus_kleis investigated the relationship between news literacy and social media use in five countries. Key findings below Image
3. In this online survey experiment, @simgandi tested the effect of a nudge on reducing the dissemination of false news on social media. Using the social norms theory, she examined whether a cheap and easy solution could reduce the willingness to share false news.
Her analysis showed that a message that encourages verifying information before sharing on social media on top of an article can reduce the willingness to share false news by 5 percentage points. Key findings below Image
4. @dragz @antoniskalog @rasmus_kleis found that the more people go direct to news, the less diverse and less partisan their news diets are. The more they access news via social, search and aggregators, diets become more diverse but also more partisan. See charts below Image
5. @dragz @annisch @rasmus_kleis find that across 36 news markets people who do not intentionally use social media for news still have broader news diets than people that do not use social media at all -with the effect stronger in countries with higher internet penetration Image
