Understanding Digital Communities & Social Media: Talk Back Better Webinar Series

2 June | 14:00 – 15:15 CEST | 12:00 – 13:15 UTC

This webinar is the second in the five-part series on progressive science communication, Talk Back Better.  

The webinar will explore the specific capabilities required for digital engagement, particularly on countering misinformation.

We know that editorial decentralization of news and information has created space for the amplification of various perspectives on science. This webinar will explore the reality of most people’s engagement with social media but, crucially will also look at the concerns in some communities about the impact of algorithms and gatekeeping on the internet. This appears to be a blind spot for many research communities. The session will talk about why that is and what can be done about this realistically.
