    News for you! News consumption in a world of news sites, algorithms, and social media.

    Who is exposed to what kind of news? Citizens, especially younger adults, are increasingly and predominantly using online and social media to get informed about the world around them. They are often directed to news via their social networks (e.g., Facebook) and via algorithmic news recommender systems. By analysing citizens in an online media ecosystem, this project tackles the question how content features, consumer features and context features interact in shaping news exposure and, ultimately, political interest and political participation. By doing so, we aim to better understand news use, the existence of echo chambers and filter bubbles, and their effect in the evolving media landscape.
