Study shows influence of Swiss media and social media on opinion-forming

Biel/Bienne, 21.01.2020 - The potential of social media to shape opinion currently remains limited throughout Switzerland.

Social media has the greatest impact in the French-speaking part of Switzerland, where it plays a similar role to print media in opinion-forming and has more influence than online offerings. The opinion-forming potential of the various media types – print, radio, TV, online – can be seen on the Media Monitor Switzerland interactive website.
