Social media awareness is "slowly but surely" rising in Hungary, according to a recent survey by the country's media authority, the National Media and Communications Authority (NMHH), writes hirado.hu.
The survey found that an overwhelming majority of Hungarians use the internet daily and consider it important to be able to comment on matters of public interest.
Fully 71% of social media users expressed a need to see posts that, according to the algorithm, clash with their views. A similar share of respondents said it was important to have access to multiple sides of a news story and related opinions.
More than 60% considered it important for all comments to be visible in online discussions. Just over 40% agreed with imposing punishments for anonymous opinions and fake news.
