The Oxford Internet Institute is pleased to have Pablo Boczkowski for the first OII Colloquia of Trinity Term. The event will be followed by a short drinks reception.

In this presentation Pablo Boczkowski will share preliminary results of an ongoing study of how young people (18-29 years of age) consume news on social media. Drawing upon survey and interview data, he will shed light on: a) the growing importance of the incidental access to information; b) the technological, demographic, and structural determinants of this phenomenon; and c) the dynamics of its experiential dimension. He will conclude by reflecting on what these findings mean for the ties that connect media, technology, and society in the digital age.
