Survey of Members

ABC Friends SA/NT Committee decided to adopt a more inclusive approach to decision making for its activities beyond the opinions of the Committee.  To enable this approach, a survey of members was developed to obtain information about the membership age, gender, opinions and suggestions.

Young Australians increasingly get news from social media, but many don’t understand algorithms.

What now?

The shift in young people’s news engagement toward social media highlights the need for consistent media literacy education across Australia.

This can help young people learn more about social media business models, visual modes of communication (particularly video), methods for identifying misinformation, privacy settings and how algorithms work.

This kind of education will help young people to grow up being engaged but critical news consumers and citizens.
