According to a 2021 Pew Research Center survey, about half of all Americans now use social media as a news resource. Social media has provided an alternative path from traditional journalism that allows for diverse voices to be heard and amplified. At the same time, this largely unregulated news distribution has led to concerns of widespread misinformation and biased reporting.
The February SVJP Benkyokai will explore social media’s influence on news and journalism. Guest speakers Liriel Higa, Former Senior Managing Partner for US News at Twitter and John Onoda, Principal of managing consulting firm iQ 360 and corporate communications expert, will present six key insights for listeners to contemplate. A following discussion will be moderated by Glen S. Fukushima, Vice Chair at Securities Investor Protection Corporation.
