The purpose of the research is to examine social media usage for news consumption, news behaviors, and online civic reasoning among Generation Z. Specifically, the study has two main purposes: 1) examine social media usage frequency for news consumption and other news behaviors (e.g., sharing, liking) via social media; and 2) examine the extent to which Gen Z uses aspects of online civic reasoning in their social media news consumption/behaviors. This was accomplished via an online survey of Gen Z college-aged students (N=187) enrolled at a private university located in the southern part of the United States.
