'YouTube going off as a news source': Australians among world's most likely to share dodgy articles

Description

Australians are among the world's most likely to share dodgy articles online at a time when almost half of Generation Z uses social media as their main news source and Google's YouTube surges in popularity.

The Digital News Report released on Wednesday by the University of Canberra's News and Media Research Centre, in conjunction with researchers in 37 other countries, found that Australia had the highest proportion of people accessing news content as little as once a day or less.
