DECIDIS survey "Social Media Use and Political Engagement"

How do Danes engage with and through social media in public political debates? Are Danes becoming participatory content creators or is this a mere ideal of social media use? These are some of the questions the DECIDIS survey “Social Media Use and Political Engagement” engages in. The collected data shows that social media and especially Facebook continues to be a central part of most Danes daily media habits; especially younger Danes are active. The generation between 20 and 39 years is most likely to use Facebook in order to discuss politics with strangers. Overall, it can be concluded that social media use is a daily practice in Denmark, however, frequency and type of use differ greatly. The majority of Danes use social media primarily to read content; social media is less frequently used for producing original content or for interacting with content produced by others.
