Join us on Twitter next Thursday 30 March between 2 pm and 3 pm to discuss the role of social media in forming public opinion.

We will be discussing the following questions:

    • Is social media creating silos in public opinion since everyone lives in a bubble of like-minded people?


    • Do social media networks over-represent populist minorities, helping them create mainstream opinions simply because they are louder?


    • How can one counter fake news and promote real journalism?


    • Can social media polls replace opinion polls?


    • Are social media algorithms an obstacle to democratic debates?


    • What role does social media have in political decision-making and can its impact be measured?


    • We saw the power of social media in Brexit and in the US elections, what impact can it have in the French presidential elections?
