Multiple polarization mechanism of comments on smart media platforms(First Author)
We take an insight into the comments on Toutiao.com, which is one of the most important smart media platforms in China. We manually code part of the news and comments, and apply machine learning. We find that the polarization degree of the comments is strongly connected with that of the news. Meanwhile, the number of ‘likes’ also has an impact on the polarization condition. Finally, based on the revised cascading network activation model(Entman & Usher, 2018), we propose a multiple polarization mechanism of comments on smart media platforms. This research is target at 2022IAMCR.
