Das integrative Potenzial des Internets und der Stand der Forschung zu Filterblasen und Echokammern

While the media are usually ascribed integrative services, there are growing concerns that the Internet could contribute to a loss of social cohesion.
The online lecture is part of our event series Leibniz Media Lectures and is organized within the Research Institute Social Cohesion. Merja Mahrt will address the differences in the integrative potential of different media from the perspective of communication science and will show the current state of research on digital fragmentation. Do "filter bubbles" and "echo chambers" really exist? To what extent can they be a threat to social cohesion? In what respect can we give the all-clear signal?
4.00 p.m. – 5.30 p.m.
The event takes place online on Zoom. Dial-in details will be provided after the registration (by email to event@leibniz-hbi.de) and shortly before the event is about to begin. The participation is free of charge.
