* Respondents from all 28 EU member states were asked "In a pre-election period, traditional media usually have to observe a number of rules, such as observing silence periods just before the elections, ensuring equal campaigning time for the different candidates or strict rules on funding for the campaign. Do you think that these rules should also apply to online social networks, Internet platforms and actors using them?"
