At #ICA20#ica_jsd@dragz@rasmus_kleis and me present a study that examines relationships between news literacy and using social media for news. We take DNR 2018 data and compare findings across 5 countries 🇩🇪🇸🇪🇫🇷🇺🇸🇬🇧
We define news literacy as knowledge about how the news is made (cc @sethdashley). We developed a measure that aims to compare this knowledge across countries - this is a very challenging thing to do. But (which is why?), comparative research on the topic is largely missing.
