Mass Media is playing an important role in the Covid-19 response and has always constituted the necessary infrastructure for modern public sphere. The public sphere is where citizens communicate about the rule of their society. Digital public sphere has distributed essential information, diverse forms of knowledge and argumentation about facts, problems and possible solutions.

Through Murray Edelman’s framing analysis method, digital media has recently been thought of as national, media specific, and as part of cultural domain.

As counterhegemonic space, digital public sphere encourages people to share their view against hegemony through the use of persuasion while raising awareness.
