Seriously Social: Young Adults, Social Media and News

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

A survey of two large college populations found a stark, significant negative correlation between social media use, news use and being informed. Two scenarios were tested: A complementary-use hypothesis in which social media use aids news use; and a displacement hypothesis in which social media use impedes news use. Social media use was found to be significantly related to less news use and being less informed.
