Torsdag d. 25. august fremlagde professor Jens Hoff (Københavns Universitet), forskningschef Jakob Linaa Jensen (Danmarks Medie og Journalist højskole) og lektor Lisbeth Klastrup fra IT-Universitetet i København nogle centrale fund fra deres undersøgelse af brugen af internettet i folketingsvalget 2015. Undersøgelsen baserer sig på tal indsamlet fra et survey besvaret af 3590 respondenter, og er udført i samarbejde med Danske Medier. Det er den tredje undersøgelse i træk der ser på danskernes brug af internettet i forbindelse med et folketingsvalg , hvilket betyder, at vi nu har et interessant tidsstudie af hvordan brugen af internettet i forbindelsen med danske folketingsvalg har udviklet sig siden 2007.

Tallene fra 2015 viser – ikke overraskende – at internettet har fået stadig større betydning som kilde til politisk information i forbindelse undervejs i folketingsvalget. Hele 88% af surveydeltagerne havde benyttet sig af internettet til at søge politisk information, og 61% angiver at de har set politisk indhold på sociale medier (angivet som “Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, blogs, YouTube etc.”). Særligt valgquizzer og tests er blevet populære – hele 60% af deltagerne havde testet deres politiske holdning i en valgquiz eller test. Samtidig ses samme tendens som ved de forrige valg: der er langt flere, der “passivt” søger politisk information i relation til valget end der er folk, der deltager aktivt i valget online (ved fx. selv at deltage i debatter eller poste eget indhold).

Save the date – Nov 25th: DECIDIS conference on "The Informed Citizen"


On Friday, Nov 25th (13.00-16.00), DECIDIS researcher Martina Mahnke Skrubbeltrang will together with students organize a conference around the notion of "The Informed Citizen". The information citizen is a basic principle of modern democracy, however, it seems like only very few have engaged in the question lately of what it exactly means to be an informed citizen and more importantly, what an informed citizen is informed about and informed by whom? These are pressing questions in contemporary society, not at least because the contemporary model of democracy explicitly emphasizes the role of the informed citizen as a central one to a functioning democracy. In an age where we can witness a fundamental shift of information sources, e.g. from traditional newspaper to Facebook , the question of becoming informed has arguably reached new relevance. From a technical perspective we wish to explore these new means of communication and information seeking. If being informed is such a pivotal element of democratic society, does it matter where we find the information? How do we practice the distribution and production of information channels, and how do we decide what kind of information is important to foster informed citizens?

Latest DECIDIS research


Look out for DECIDIS researchers, who will present their latest research in the AoIR conference as well as the ECREA conference.

Further DECIDIS researchers Vasilis Galis and Christina Neumayer have published an article on the appropriations of social media by activists of the radical left in Greece and Sweden. Drawing on interview material and online ethnographic observations, the aim of the article is to understand how and with what consequences social media facilitate and limit collective action. Further, the article seeks to enhance our understanding of activists’ social media use by turning our attention to the sociotechnical impact of social media on collective action initiated by leftist groups as well as the relationship between ideological loyalties and the political economy of corporate social media.
