Project: Professor Gil de Zúñiga will develop a collaborative project within the department of Periodismo y Comunicación Audiovisual at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. During his visit, he will closely participate in the “big data, social networks and data journalism” project currently led by Prof. Elias.

The studies of social media and bid data analytics, within the framework of journalism, has begun to draw attention in the field of communication both academically and professionally. The work to be developed in this area seeks to highlight the importance of information and communication technologies for journalism and journalists today.

More specifically, this project will empirically analyze the effect of social media, social networks, and massive amount of data available in the internet to journalists as it influences their daily practices. Additionally, the study will also examine the effects of these journalistic practices as for whether or not they contribute, and if so how, to generate an informed public opinion in Spain, and elsewhere.
