Truth Or Share: Junkee Media's 2018 Youth Research

Is Snapchat cool anymore? Is Facebook trusted? Do young people give a shit about changing the date of Australia Day, or are they more interested in smashed avo? In a world where truth is in the eye of the beholder, Junkee Media's latest annual research cuts through the noise to find out what really matters to young Australians. 'Truth Or Share' is an insightful and entertaining look at the facts of the figures of the largest longitudinal research study conducted into under 35 year-olds by Australia's leading youth publisher, Junkee Media.
