Campaigning on social media – An interview with Prof. Quandt and Mike Preuß

The election campaign for the Bundestag in 2017 was also fought on the Internet. From the right to the left, the parties fought tirelessly for votes on social networks with posts, tweets, likes and memes. New territory for campaigners looking for the most successful network strategy between fake news, hate speeches and troll attacks.

Frontal 21 accompanied the parties in the Net election campaign and interviewed Prof. Thorsten Quandt and Dr. Mike Preuß on the subject of social bots and propaganda. The Frontal 21 programme from September 26th, 2017 is available in the ZDF media library (link in German).
