With creative designs, this book contains important contributions to our understanding of social media news’s effects on political engagement, political knowledge, willingness to engage in self-censorship, and political disaffection.
In recent years, social media has emerged as a major source of news and other information. The unique nature of social media and the variety of platforms available to individuals present challenges for those who want to study and understand its psychological impact. Fortunately, many innovative studies on this subject have appeared in publications in the last few years. This edited volume features a collection of recently published studies focusing on the effects of social media news as well as the framing of social issues on these platforms. The authors of these studies used surveys, experiments, and content analysis to explore their research questions. Each chapter provides valuable insights on the growing influence of social media news.
The chapters in this book were originally published in the journal Mass Communication and Society.
