  1. Veronika Karnowski, Till Keyling, & Dominik Leiner News diffusion via

    social media platforms: challenging classical DOI theory? 4th European Communication Conference „Social Media and Global Voices“ October 24-27, 2012 Istanbul, Turkey
  2. 2 Social network sites (SNS) and the diffusion of news

    • The S-shaped curve of diffusion could also be confirmed for news diffusion (Deutschmann & Danielson, 1960; Singhal, Rogers & Mahajan, 1999) • SNS are of ever increasing importance as an information source for their users (Purcell, Rainie, Mitchell, Rosenstiel & Olmstead, 2010) • SNS emphasize the social (sharing, recommending) character of news diffusion (Sim & Fu, 2008, Gil de Zúniga, Jung & Valenzuela, 2012) Karnowski, Keyling & Leiner: News diffusion via social media platforms adoption rate time
  3. 3 Why researching news diffusion? • The shape of the

    news diffusion curve can be considered as an indicator of “information equality” (Sinnreich, Chib & Gilbert, 2008) • Interpersonal communication about news can explain media effects on non- users (Maurer 2004, Krause & Gehrau 2007) • Is of relevance in the discussion of substitution effects and cannibalization (Kolo, 2010) Karnowski, Keyling & Leiner: News diffusion via social media platforms
  4. 4 Research questions a) Can we still find the S-shaped

    curve postulated by diffusions of innovations theory? b) Are there differences regarding the process and patterns of diffusion? c) Are there content-specific emphases for each SNS? Karnowski, Keyling & Leiner: News diffusion via social media platforms

    Plusses) t0 Last Measure (5 days) Total Amount of Recommendation t50 50% Amount Point in time where 50% of recommendations reached Publication Karnowski, Keyling & Leiner: News diffusion via social media platforms
  7. 7 An example of a diffusion curve/growth curve • rapid

    increase in the first 2 hours • S-Curve for Comments found • No S-Curve for Tweets? • instantaneous and concurrent diffusion via mass media Karnowski, Keyling & Leiner: News diffusion via social media platforms Comments
  8. 8 Total Amount of Recommendations by Platform Tweets Shares Amount

    of Tweets Amount of Shares Karnowski, Keyling & Leiner: News diffusion via social media platforms
  9. 9 Speed of Diffusion on Twitter by Topic Tweets Karnowski,

    Speed of Diffusion on Facebook by Topic Shares
  11. 11 Summary and discussion  Promising methodology • The first

    four hours are crucial in order to estimate the maximal reach • Less time-critical news categories (Service, Feuilleton & Media, Science & Technic) diffuse a lot more slowly • Faster diffusion via Twitter than via Facebook  Might be an indicator for the supposed difference between Twitter as a news source and Facebook as a plattform for the discussion of news  The s-shaped curve of news diffusion can be confirmed for the discussion of news topics (comments), not for the diffusion per se (shares, tweets) Karnowski, Keyling & Leiner: News diffusion via social media platforms
