Opinion Leadership in the Era of Social Media
Mejzr, Vojtěch ; Lupač, Petr (advisor) ; Vinopal, Jiří (referee)
Vojtěch Mejzr - Opinion leadership in the era of social media Abstract (in English): The concepts of opinion leadership and personal influence in relation to media emerged around 1950s, in the era of mass media. Opinion leaders became a cornerstone for a magnitude of consequent studies, either as mediators of media influence, but also as providers of personal influence, able to incidentally affect the opinions or acting of the people around them. The traditional medial system upon which are the classic theories based, however, has undergone significant changes - changes, which blur the lines between its primary distinctions. The emergence of "new" media is connected to processes of convergence, affecting the media technologies, the content, the relationship between the media and time, space and individual experiences of everyday life, but most importantly, the relationship between the content producers and the audiences, which are no longer just consumers. Diffusion of the internet and furthermore the user-oriented Web 2.0 grants the users abilities to use the social media in order to participate in the selection, production, but also distribution and gatekeeping of content - functions that have been previously distinctively held by the producers and the media industry. In this study, I use theoretical...

Data Quality in Smartphone-Based Online Surveys
Niklová, Olga ; Buriánek, Jiří (advisor) ; Vinopal, Jiří (referee)
This paper deals with online data collection via touchscreen smartphones. The aim of the work is to answer a question whether the data obtained via mobile phones is of comparable quality to the data obtained through other devices. The introduction describes the advantages as well as the challenges related to the collection of data using mobile phones based on the technical parameters of mobile phones. These specifics of mobile phones require the need to adapt questionnaires for data collection through mobile phones by optimizing questionnaire design, which is a key prerequisite for obtaining quality data through mobile phones. The text will cover the methods of optimization of the form and the visual design of questionnaire tools; and present their importance in terms quality of data. Subsequently, the discussion covers existing findings concerning the quality of data obtained through mobile phones based on quality of data indicators including measurement errors and non- response errors, concluding that the quality of data obtained through mobile phones, with the correct methods of optimization is comparable to data collected using other devices. The data analysis based on selected quality of data indicators confirms other findings up to date.
Equal Educational Opportunities in Czech Media Discourse
Spitzerová, Markéta ; Vinopal, Jiří (advisor) ; Sládek, Jan (referee)
The target of my thesis is to compare the way equal educational opportunities are depicted in media with subject matter experts' opinions, international surveys' results and public opinion on the possibility of achiving education corresponding to individual abilities. There is a discrepancy in their opinion. I analysed media discourse using both content analysis and contexts provided by media. The most frequently mentioned aspect in unequal acces to education is the social status influence on the achieved level of schooling. Despite that, even this aspect is mentioned in less than half of published contributions and it rarely deals with equal opportunitis in acces to universitary schooling. The media discuss unequal educational opportinities in relation to moral aspects, job market and quality of schools. Those who speak in favour of measures that foster equal educational opportunities as well as those who are not in accordance with them use these three contexts to defend their opinions although there is a different level of abstraction in their discourse. In the end, I arrive to the conclusion that public opinion is in a greater correspondence with media discourse which, according theory of agenda setting, makes it possible for the media to deform the reflection of equal educational opportunities....
Opinion instability
Vomáčka, Aleš ; Vinopal, Jiří (advisor) ; Linek, Lukáš (referee)
This thesis is concerned with the topic of opinion instability and is centred on three questions: Does opinion instability exists? How prevalent opinion instability is? What may be the cause of opinion instability? The thesis combines previous studies relevant for the topic and secondary analysis of several datasets. The conclusions of the thesis are that opinion instability is a real phenomenon, rather than an artefact of measurement. Furthermore, the prevalence of opinion instability depends for a large part in its operationalization, although it can be considered relatively common. The determinants of opinion instability are the topic proficiency and motivation, as well as the prevalence of the topic and consistency of frames.
Public Preferences for Environmental Policies and Behavioural Changes
Zvěřinová, Iva ; Vinopal, Jiří (advisor) ; Vávra, Jan (referee) ; Šauer, Petr (referee)
Iva Zvěřinová PhD Thesis Public Preferences for Environmental Policies and Behavioural Changes Abstract Environmental problems, such as climate change, are generally perceived as serious issues by the public in European countries. However, people tend to assign them a low policy priority and disagree with the introduction of some policy instruments, such as carbon tax. Few people also behave in an environmentally friendly way and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. What are the preferences of the inhabitants of several European countries regarding climate mitigation policies and behavioural changes? What makes these policies more acceptable for the public? Would people from these countries be willing to accept climate mitigation policies or behaviour, and if so, under what conditions? This thesis aims to answer these questions by applying a theoretical framework that integrates attitudes and perceptions with preferences. In the empirical part of the thesis, we analyse data from several questionnaire surveys on public responses to climate policies and climate-related behaviours in several European countries. The thesis contains four empirical studies focusing on: i. public preferences for climate mitigation policies; ii. public preferences for policy instruments to reduce GHG emissions; iii. consumers'...
