A recent Suan Dusit Poll suggests Thai people get most of their news about Covid from social media or television. The survey was conducted by Suan Dusit Rajabhat University. A total of 1,270 people were surveyed throughout the country from August 9 to August 12 to determine the public’s interest in “figures and statistics” associated with the Covid situation. On the question of where they get this Covid related news, 71.84% of respondents replied they see it on TV. 70.49% got their news from social media, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Line. 56.49% responded that they refer to news websites.

Due this circumstances, that Facebook is considered as a "serious" source for news, the government is forced to issue some Fake-News-Warnings occasionally. I rarly see Thai reading newspages like CNN, CNA, Bangkok Post, The Times or something like that. Just scrolling down, what a friend just has posted in FB or a shared Video by Line...  ?

hahaha, means those expert researchers didn't even notice it before they published it?

@yetanother. If you're referring to the percentages shown in this sentence . . .

'On the question of where they get this Covid related news, 71.84% of respondents replied they see it on TV. 70.49% got their news from social media, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Line. 56.49% responded that they refer to news websites. […]'

 . . . I assume that many of the people asked will use at least one of the 3 news sources polled, maybe all of them and thus the % numbers far exceeding 100. That's how I read it. The percentages indicated on the 'how much time a day' question do add up to 100, whilst the other 2 polls, like the 'which news source' one, again relate to people for whom 2 or 3 of the answers apply.

Ugh.  That’s unfortunate because whatever info someone wants,  they can search for anything that agrees with their opinion and find it.  I limit the info I get from online and I don’t watch the news on TV because it’s either too left or too right.  That leaves the Thaiger which I check to see if any status changes for expats…then see what other stuff is “popular”.
