Content Analysis of News Consumption on Social Media 1

In today's world, news consumers are increasingly likely to get their news from social media outlets, including but not limited to Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. These outlets provide easier access to news compared to more traditional sources such as cable TV and newspapers, and more importantly, they offer platforms where consumers can express their opinions through various forms of reactions. In this project, we will conduct a content analysis of news consumption on social media, focusing on the news itself as well as consumers' reactions to it.
