Globe Newswire: New Study: Americans Who Get COVID-19 Information from Social Media Are More Likely to Believe Misinformation, Less Likely to Be Vaccinated. “Americans who consider social media influential on their perceptions about COVID-19 and vaccines are far more likely than the general population to believe false and misleading information about the virus, according to a new study. Based on a survey of 3,000 U.S. adults conducted by Morning Consult on behalf of the de Beaumont Foundation and pollster and communications analyst Dr. Frank Luntz, the analysis draws a direct and irrefutable correlation between Americans’ use of social media and belief of inaccurate information. ”
