VIDEO: With whom do news apps share their data with?

Aske Kammer, Assistant Professor at IT University Copenhagen, told us about his research paper presented at NordMedia 2017. Kammer has investigated news applications for smartphones, and how data is exchanged between the apps and third-party actors, such as Facebook and Google. Preliminary findings show that news apps have many third-party actors who they exchange data with, but that these actors are also similar across different apps.

Kammer also tells about his other interests: studying media policy from a comparative perspective.

The interview was filmed at the NordMedia 2017 conference in Tampere.
