Funding for Global Survey on Platform Governance

The Swiss Federal Office of Communications (OFCOM) is funding a project at ZeMKI as part of its media research funding program.

The project Platform Governance Survey 2022, which started in August 2022, is organised around a global survey of social media users on topics related to content moderation on platforms. The project is led by Dr. Dennis Redeker and is part of the Lab "Platform Governance, Media, and Technology" (Prof. Katzenbach). In order to investigate user preferences for content moderation in a cross-national comparison, about 20,000 users of Facebook and Instagram from more than 30 countries will be surveyed online. The funding will allow for an existing survey project (supported by the Bremen-Fonds) to be significantly strengthened and geographically expanded.

Duration: August 1, 2022 - March 31, 2023
