Agreement that social media platforms are accurate news sources 2019, by country

In April 2019, the Sri Lankan government cut off social media access in the wake of a fatal terrorist attack. According to an Ipsos survey conducted a month later, only 45 percent of the respondents agreed that social media platforms were the best and most accurate sources of news and information in their country. Especially respondents from Great Britain were critical about the accuracy of social media event in times of crisis. This statement is especially relevant in the context of potential government shutdowns of social media in times of crisis in order to spread fake news and general disagreement with this idea as social media is the primary source of information for many people.
