Social Media Contributes to Increased Perception of Food Technology as Risky Business

Society for Risk Analysis (SRA)

When it comes to food technology, the information shared on social media often trumps the facts put out by the scientific community and food experts, leading to the dissemination of disinformation, “fake news” and conspiracy theories. Nowhere is this more evident than consumers’ mistrust of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), despite assurances from the scientific community and food experts. Several studies covering this widespread risk perception of food technologies will be presented during the Visual Cues and Perceptions of Risk: Modern Agriculture in the Era of Social Media symposium on Wednesday, Dec. 11 from 8:30-10:00 a.m. at the 2019 Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) Annual Meeting at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Virginia

‘Going Negative’: How Trump Has Changed the Twitter Narrative

University of South Australia

If not for Twitter, US President Donald Trump would not be in the White House today. True/false? That’s for others to judge but it’s probably true, say two Australian linguists who have released a paper analysing Trump’s use of Twitter prior to and six months after his election in 2016.

Cornell University

New Cornell research explores how a racially diverse group of LGBTQ beauty vloggers navigates seemingly contradictory roles: masculine and feminine; authentic and heavily made up. The vloggers often provide unpaid content to YouTube, but have the potential to enrich themselves; they’re vulnerable to harassment, but they also promote the visibility of marginalized people.
