Das integrative Potenzial des Internets und der Stand der Forschung zu Filterblasen und Echokammern [The Integrative Potential of the Internet and the State of Research on Filter Bubbles and Echo Chambers]

Merja Mahrt will address the differences in the integrative potential of different media from the perspective of communication science and will show the current state of research on digital fragmentation. Do "filter bubbles" and "echo chambers" really exist? To what extent can they be a threat to social cohesion? In what respect can we give the all-clear signal?

Kids Online – Risk or Fun?

At this event, Prof. Dr. Uwe Hasebrink, Dr. Claudia Lampert and Kira Thiel will present the results of a current representative survey on the online experiences of children and young people and invite the participants to join them in a discussion.

About the Presentation

Children and young people use the Internet intensively and in very different ways. In doing so, they are confronted with a variety of risks. However, their risk perception and risk awareness do not always coincide with those of their parents. These are the results of the representative EU Kids Online Survey in Germany, conducted by the Leibniz Institute for Media Research | Hans-Bredow-Institut (HBI).

About the Speakers

Prof. Dr. Uwe Hasebrink is Director of the HBI, Dr. Claudia Lampert is Senior Researcher and Kira Thiel is Junior Researcher. Together they are investigating the online experiences of children and young people in Europe as part of the joint project EU Kids Online.
