Interview with Radio New Zealand on the New Zealand Social Media Study (NZSMS)

This week I spoke with „Morning Report“ on RNZ about the New Zealand Social Media Study (NZSMS) that I am conducting together with my colleague Professor Jack Vowles. We spoke about how we collect the data and in particular how we measure the use of fake news in the Facebook campaigns of the parties and the top candidates in the upcoming general election here in New Zealand, and also what we expect to find regarding the social media use of the New Zealand parties and candidates compared to other countries such as the US.
