Registration for Misinformation and Social Media RTD (CLOSED)
How do people access information, and how can this affect political phenomena?

The UP Center for Women's and Gender Studies, together with the Pew Research Center, is proud to host Dr. Laura Silver, Senior Researcher at the Pew Research Center, as she shares her insights from survey she and her team conducted across 11 developing countries in 2018.

"Concepts like 'fake news' and misinformation resonate across cultures. We had always intended to ask our survey respondents about news on social media – specifically, whether such news is easily accessible, up-to-date and tailored to users’ personal interests. But in the focus groups, we were struck by how much 'fake news' as a concept came up during the sessions. Indeed, even though the bulk of the focus groups were conducted in a foreign language, the phrase 'fake news' was sometimes mentioned in English."
