Sharing Fake News on Social Media: Understanding the Relationship Between Believe and Share Presented at the 69th Annual Conference of the International Communication Association KEY PUBLICATIONS The Prosocial Behaviors in the Digital Age Project, co- led by Natalie Bazarova (Communication) and Drew Margolin (Communication), seeks to understand prosocial behaviors through the lens of digital technologies. This collaborative project is focused on encouraging prosocial behaviors online, which include, but are not limited to, bystander interventions, the correction of false information, and online peer support to those in distress and needing help. In addition to exploring ways to encourage prosocial behaviors, this interdisciplinary team seeks to examine and leverage theoretical mechanisms through which online anti- social behaviors can be reduced. Bazarova, Dominic DiFranzo (Communication), and Janis Whitlock (BCTR), along with collaborators Amanda Purington and Yoon Choi, are currently building interactive modules for the Social Media TestDrive, an innovative online platform for digital literacy education in youth. They have partnered with Cornell PRYDE and Common Sense Education in developing, evaluating, and disseminating TestDrive modules. Margolin and Whitlock have been leading the project’s efforts to develop a new grant proposal to support a study of false information dissemination on social media, with a focus on how to find effective ways for individuals to correct false information posted online. Their approach focuses on the tension between the pro-social benefit of making information more accurate and the potentially anti-social cost of creating hostile, conflict-oriented discourse online. Vanessa Bohns (Organizational Behavior) and Rene Kizilicec (Information Science) have been working to determine best directions for the review paper focusing on prosocial behaviors and empathy. Two research questions have been posed: 1) What factors influence whether people respond to a moral violation with empathy for the person who has been harmed vs. moral outrage at the person who has done the harming? 2) Do people underestimate the efficacy of empathy expressions? DiFranzo, Bazarova, and Katherine Miller (Communication), are working together to coordinate a workshop for the Truman platform, which is an open source, complete social media simulation platform for experimental research that is freely available for researchers. Additionally, DiFranzo and Bazarova, along with Philipp Masur, a visiting scholar from Germany, are in the process of completing a three-phase study of social norms and digital literacy on privacy and disclosure in social media. In 2018, Margolin was awarded a grant for the “Social Connections to Local Food Produces Using Immersive and Non-Immersive Video” project, in the amount of $151,145. Bazarova and Whitlock were awarded $500,000 for the “Leveraging Social Media TestDrive and Digital Citizenship Curriculum for Kids and Schools” project by The James and Rebecca Morgan Fund to support a partnership with Common Sense Media. Bohns was awarded $250,855 for “Psychological Assessment of Voluntary Consent,” as a co-principal investigator, with PI Roseanna Sommers. Additionally, in 2019, Bohns was awarded the Op-Ed Training Grant by the Society for Personality and Social Psychology. NEW FUNDING 8 2018-2021 PROSOCIAL BEHAVIORS IN THE DIGITAL AGE
