Tracking online behaviour during the pandemic

The pandemic has increased our reliance on different media technologies to navigate daily life, making us more likely to be susceptible to digital harms, such as being exposed to falsehoods circulating online.

To monitor Singapore residents’ online behaviour during the pandemic, such as how they interacted with fake news, their online shopping activity, and digital payment trends, researchers at NTU’s Centre for Information Integrity and the Internet (IN-cube) tracked a panel of Singapore residents through online surveys in Dec 2020, Jun 2021, and Dec 2021.

At a webinar, the IN-cube team shared the findings and their analysis of what they mean for Singapore, considered to be one of the most digitally connected nations in the world.
