Making media monitoring work for government bodies

Media monitoring is an increasingly important government service for any local, state or federal department. DataScouting, as a media monitoring software provider, is working with several government bodies around the world helping them cover their media intelligence needs and requirements.

Government monitoring of media

When it comes to government bodies, the common case is that they have their own in-house monitoring service that serves different departments. The service is used to:

Why social media is so polarized - and how it polarizes us

FIBEP hosted another episode of its Interview Series about political polarization in social media on the 4th of October with Mr Kostas Vaxevanis, publisher and investigative journalist. The interview was sponsored by DataScouting. The event was moderated by Sophia Karakeva, FIBEP Vice President and Chief Communications Officer at DataScouting.

Mr Vaxevanis talked about polarization in social media and how it works (is it the result of algorithms that work behind-the-scenes or triggered by government interference with sponsorship filters and restrictions over free expression)? Are we entering a new era of media regulation and what can we learn from the Greek government’s COVID-19 media awareness campaign crisis (the so called “Petsas list”)?
