How to Reach Swiss Digital Natives with News. A Qualitative Study

At a glance


Information services for young people today have to meet different requirements than those offered by traditional media. Innovations in this area require both structural changes and new ways of thinking in editorial offices as well as new media formats that anticipate technological and social developments and the media behavior of young people, e.g. their media consumption via smartphones and on social media platforms. In this context, the question of the media competence of digital natives also arises.
This is where our project comes in: The understanding of news and the use of news by young people, i.e: (i) the demands and expectations of young people with regard to news offerings, (ii) their media behavior and the activities associated with news consumption, and (iii) their media competence in dealing with news. The special features of the multilingual Swiss media landscape are alos taken into account.
