Panel #3- Beyond Facebook and Twitter: Diverse Media Diets and the 2020 Election
The impact of Facebook and Twitter on politics has garnered significant media and scholarly attention, and for good reason — the new digital public square has transformed politics for both elites and the broader public. But American media diets are significantly more diverse than these two platforms, ranging from traditional media (local and national news) to popular but understudied social media platforms (YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok). Panelists will present new research that examines these media diets and what impacts they might have on the upcoming election.
CSMaP is co-sponsoring this event with the Center for Media Engagement (https://mediaengagement.org/), which is based at the Moody College of Communication at The University of Texas at Austin.
This event is open to the public, but registration is required.
