Ofcom publishes raft of new reports on online behaviour

Ofcom published three new Making Sense of Media reports on 9 June on a range of issues relating to online behaviour. These complement Ofcom’s flagship Online Nation report and interactive dataset, also published on Wednesday 9th June. Evidence about people’s online habits, behaviours and attitudes are a crucial component of Ofcom’s statutory duties. Such evidence helps them – and others – to identify trends and to spot emerging issues. Ofcom also wants to understand how effective media literacy initiatives are – what works, what is less effective, and which component parts can be transferred into other initiatives as best practice.
