This book focuses on everyday uses and effects of the internet, including information seeking and big data, and explains how the internet has gone beyond traditional media in, for example, enabling Donald Trump to come to power.
The media landscape has been transformed by the internet, which has both opened up new forms of access to traditional media while allowing the creation of ‘new’ medias. Are the changes the internet has brought all positive? Or does digital media risk the even more widespread proliferation of misinformation and propaganda?
Research on the internet and the media at the OII considers all aspects of these questions, from the health of the UK’s information ecosystem to the interplay between misinformation, news coverage, and the public’s understanding of science.
