Crude Comments and Concern: Online Incivility's Effect on Risk Perceptions of Emerging Technologies

Crude Comments and Concern: Online Incivility's Effect on Risk Perceptions of Emerging Technologies | Public engagement, only digitally | Scoop.it
Patrick Middleton's insight:

Anderson - 2013 - Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication - Wiley Online Library

Uncivil discourse is a growing concern in American rhetoric, and this trend has expanded beyond traditional media to online sources, such as audience comments. Using an experiment given to a sample representative of the U.S. population, we examine the effects online incivility on perceptions toward a particular issue—namely, an emerging technology, nanotechnology. We found that exposure to uncivil blog comments can polarize risk perceptions of nanotechnology along the lines of religiosity and issue support.

Report published on public engagement in policy-making - News from Parliament - UK Parliament

Report published on public engagement in policy-making - News from Parliament - UK Parliament | Public engagement, only digitally | Scoop.it

"In a report published today, the Commons Public Administration Select Committee (PASC) calls for a “wiki” approach to policy-making, where public opinion, ideas and contributions are sought and welcome at any and all stages of the policy cycle... 

 

The Committee says:

All policy making carries risks: a lack of appetite for participation, disappointment arising from unrealistic expectations and the dominance of vested interests. Government must frankly assess and address these risks in relation to open policy making.Digital technology has a significant role to play in opening up policy-making. Government could and should go further and embrace radical and innovative approaches, but making use of existing platforms and technologies, such as Twitter. However, Government must demonstrate that the methods used in engagement exercises are suited to the needs of those they are trying to engage.The success and impact of public engagement in policy-making must be effectively  measured. Government must able to demonstrate value for money and improved outcomes with this new approach, particularly in a time of austerity."
