Sub - Project 3: Citizens and Social Media

Sub - Project 3: Citizens and Social Media, analyzes the citizens’ perspective on both the pandemic and messages about Covid-19 from governments and health institutions. The principal investigators Natalie Berger, Emese Domahidi, Johanna Geppert, Nadine Steinmetz, and Kai-Uwe Sattler analyze the main questions, to what extent these messages met the citizens’ informational needs, how media frames influenced audience perceptions and which communities of responses to government communication evolved on social media. In addition, the communication of opinion leaders on Covid-19 as well as the spreading of false information on the pandemic is within the scope of Sub - Project 3: Citizens and Social Media.
