CATALINA-GARCIA, Beatriz; SOUSA, Jorge Pedro  y  LIMA, Maria Érica de Oliveira. Political and social behavior in social networks of students in Communication in Brazil, Spain and Portugal. OBS* [online]. 2019, vol.13, n.4, pp.52-69. ISSN 1646-5954.

The adoption of social networks to the communicative routines of young people also implies a new form of accessing both news and information about environment problems. This phenomenon affects them as citizens. Through an exploratory survey, this paper (linked to a research project) compares methods and perceptions about the information obtained from networks of future journalists from Brazil, Spain and Portugal. Among the most relevant conclusions, a high use of these tools by Communication students in order to access news is shown, although the degree of skepticism about the veracity of its contents is remarkable.

Palabras clave : university students; social networks; Communication and Journalism; informative news; digital citizenship.
