The seminar was conducted by Anahit Hakobyan, PhD student of the Faculty of Sociology.
According to her, in the era of social media anyone can become a media platform.
‘In our time, social media content has become secondary’: Anahit Hakobyan said. ‘More important is the speed with which the material is disseminated in the media’.
Anahit Hakobyan also presented the participants the role of audience participation in the process of creating media content.
Anahit Hakobyan also spoke upon the economic factors that influence the spread of fake news, an example of which was the US presidential election, during which a large number of fake news was about candidates.
