Goodbye Social Media?

Pynn Rogerby Roger Pynn

A new study from a group called Project Information Literacy reveals that the rumor mill, not social media, is the preferred source of news among college students.

It has been a scary prospect to an old journalist that Facebook, Snapchat and YouTube had become the go-to source of news for many. But researchers found that while 89 percent still prefer Facebook and other social platforms as their primary source of information, 93 percent say chatting with friends is their first source of news.

You can download the executive summary from the PIL website here. There are some very relevant recommendations in the report that give me hope that someone is thinking about how to help our next generation increase its civic literacy.

Meanwhile, we’ll have to hope the rumor mill is being vetted.
