Foredrag med professor Ravi Vatrapu: What was the Role of Fake News on Facebook and Twitter in the US Election 2016?
Using a novel method of Social Set Analysis, Professor Ravi Vatrapu, director of the Centre for Business Data Analytics at Copenhagen Business School, shares insights on the US Election 2016.
Professor Vatrapu presents a big data analytics study using data from Facebook pages, Twitter bios and demographics of followers of the two main presidential candidates’ accounts, as well as polling data.
From this cutting edge research you will learn about the role of fake news on social media in creating filter bubbles, echo chambers, and the future implications of social media for civic engagement, political campaigning, and ultimately and quite ominously the threats to liberal democracy.
Foredrag den 26. april 2018, klokken 8.30-10.00 i Foredragssalen på Rønde Højskole.
