Trust in journalism under social media conditions

This article addresses the question of what influence the digital transformation of the public sphere has on trust in journalistic media. It looks in particular at the role of social network platforms and outlines the risks and opportunities arising from a loss of the gatekeeper role of journalism.
In his chapter, Fabian Prochazka examines the influence of personal characteristics, perceptions of quality and news usage.
