Digital News Becoming More Popular In Japan

Trust in traditional media is falling in Japan

Japanese internet users are becoming more and more reliant on digital sources for news and information. According to a study from Edelman, the country's confidence in social media and search engine results is growing at a high rate. At the same time, it was also found that Japanese people's trust in more traditional media sources such as news publications was falling, with nearly 10% less people trusting them now, compared to 2012. However, there are low levels of trust online. A study from 2015 showed that only 31% of Japanese internet users trusted that their online activities were not being observed.
