Young Voters Guide to Social Media and the News

Title card from Common Sense Mediataken from Common Sense Media
Millions of young voters are gearing up to vote in November—many for the first time—but feeling overwhelmed by the constant barrage of information on social media. In our recent survey of young voters, we found that only about a quarter of 18- to 29-year-olds say they know where to get unbiased information about issues and candidates.
From deepfakes and misinformation campaigns to political ads and biased news coverage, it's difficult to cut through the noise to find the facts. And with social media platforms allowing the spread of false information to go unchecked, it's harder than ever to know what's true—especially about the upcoming election and key issues.
That's why we launched theYoung Voter's Guide to Social Media and the News: to help give all voters, and especially young voters, the resources and tools necessary to separate fact from fiction and make sense of election news and social media coverage.
