Presentation: Austin Horng-En Wang

Austin Horng-En Wang (Political Science) was invited to give a speech, "Misinformation and the Political Convergence Effect on Social Media," last month at National Chengchi University, Taipei, Taiwan. He shared his recent findings about how people may "migrate" across social media sites to find their echo chamber, which influences the spread of misinformation and the effectiveness of fact-checking.
