@socrates and Scholar Social in general.
Do you know a study which looks into why people share news on social media? What's people intent?
So far, I see that people might just share a news story they find important or give their opinion/comment. On a meta level, one can comment on the quality of a news outlet. Or even call out fake news and propaganda.
Are there studies that classify shared content similarly?
