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.

Other experts included Lisa-Maria Neudert (Oxford Internet Institute), Dr. Thomas Köcher (Landeszentrale für Politische Bildung Bremen) and Dr. Frank Schulte (Editor„buten und binnen“ Radio Bremen).
