Understanding the Internet’s Impact on International Knowledge and Engagement: News Attention, Social Media Use, and the 2010 Haitian Earthquake
Unformatted Document Text:  9 civic participation (Delli Carpini & Keeter, 1996). Therefore, the second research question asks about how media use regarding the Haitian earthquake was associated with the likelihood of donating to that relief effort as a means of gauging international participation. RQ2: After controlling for education and other demographics, what other factors were positively associated with a greater likelihood of donating to Haitian earthquake relief? With the positive link between media use and international involvement previously established in a general context (Kwak, Poor, & Skoric, 2006), it is expected that news attention and personal communication technology use will be positively associated with increased involvement. H7: Higher levels of attention to media coverage of the Haitian earthquake will be associated with a greater likelihood of donating to earthquake relief. H8: Sending and receiving e-mails about the Haitian earthquake will be associated with a greater likelihood of donating to earthquake relief. H9: Sending and receiving text messages about the Haitian earthquake will be associated with a greater likelihood of donating to earthquake relief. H10: Social media use regarding the Haitian earthquake will be associated with a greater likelihood of donating to earthquake relief. Method Secondary analysis was used to examine how education, media attention, international engagement, domestic political knowledge, social media use, and demographic control variables were related to knowledge of foreign affairs, and which of those factors might moderate the knowledge gap. A data set of the Knowledge Update/Haiti Disaster Survey was downloaded from the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press. The survey was conducted January 14-17, 2010, by the Princeton Survey Research Associates in Princeton, N.J.

With the positive link between media use and international involvement previously

H7: Higher levels of attention to media coverage of the Haitian earthquake will be associated 
with a greater likelihood of donating to earthquake relief. 
H8:  Sending and receiving e-mails about  the Haitian earthquake will be associated with a 
greater likelihood of donating to earthquake relief.

with a greater likelihood of donating to earthquake relief.
