Past research has discussed the relationship between the SARF and traditional mass media, but the role of social media platforms in amplification or attenuation of risk Abstract. There is a paucity in the use of simulation for theory development in the context of the social amplification of risk.

Simulation modeling has the advantage of making a theory more precise and including relevant factors within broader boundaries (e.g. the use of multiple actors). 書名 Social Amplification of Risk: a Summary of Research 著作者等 Twigger-Ross, C 出版元 Environment Agency 刊行年月 ページ数 40p 大きさ H ISBN 言語 英語 We live in a 'risk society' where the identification, distribution and management of risks, from new technology, environmental factors or other sources are crucial to our individual and social existence.
