    The Enabling Role of ICT to Mitigate the Negative Effects of Emotional and Social Loneliness of the Elderly during COVID-19 Pandemic
    (MDPI, 2021) Llorente Barroso, Carmen; Kolotouchkina, Olga; Mañas Viniegra, Luis
    (1) Background: The COVID-19 pandemic has been especially hard on the elderly owing to their particular vulnerability to the virus. Their confinement to prevent the spread of the virus resulted in social isolation, often linked to the unwanted loneliness that hinders their emotional well-being. The enabling capacity of ICT (Information and Communication Technology) to overcome the negative effects of this isolation requires special attention. The purpose of this research is to understand the impact of the use of ICT on the emotional well-being of elderly people during their confinement. (2) Methods: A qualitative exploration method based on four focus groups with elderly people aged 60 years or older and three in-depth personal interviews with experts in education of the elderly were carried out. (3) Results: Research results evidence a negative emotional impact of the confinement (lack of physical contact with their loved ones, fear and uncertainty, feeling of loneliness, sadness at the loss of family members) on the emotional well-being of study participants. Furthermore, the operational capacity of ICT to prevent infection, as well as their positive emotional and humanizing role in providing access to entertainment and hobbies, and in improving self-esteem was also acknowledged. (4) Conclusions: ICT have become a valuable ally for elderly people aged 60 years and older to mitigate the negative effects of social isolation and loneliness imposed by the confinement.

    Fundamental rights o people with disabilites reflected in the social discourse of the main disability organisations in Spain
    (OBSERVARE, Observatório de Relações Exteriores. Universidade Autónoma de Lisboa, 2021-07-08) López Cepeda, Ismael; Mañas Viniegra, Luis; Vivar Zurita, Hipólito
    Ever since the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities took place in 2006, the promotion of fundamental rights for this group has been continuous, fostering social inclusion to reduce the stereotypes and prejudices that had prevailed until that time. The aim of this research is to analyse the discourse on social networks of the main associations, foundations, as well as public and private organisations with regard to disability in Spain on the International Day of Persons with Disabilities 2020, in order to identify the topics that generate the highest level of interaction among the different profiles on social networks. The results suggest that despite the limited reach of these organisations on social networks, their discourse is based on fundamental rights such as participation and inclusion, accessibility, individual autonomy, and equal opportunity, which provide greater knowledge and a positive vision of persons with disabilities to society as a whole, raising awareness about stereotypes, prejudices and hate speech that are still common.

    Evolución del perfil profesional del community manager durante la década 2009-2018
    (EPI SCP, 2019-05-05) Mañas Viniegra, Luis; Jiménez Gómez, Isidro
    La especialización de community manager apenas está presente en los planes de estudio de los grados en Comunicación, a pesar de la creciente importancia de las redes sociales como fuente de empleo y de que el 75% de las ofertas que incorporan tareas de community manager correspondan a un perfil exclusivo y diferenciado de otros digitales. A partir de una muestra formada por las 731 ofertas publicadas con funciones de community manager en, el principal portal especializado en el sector, se realiza un análisis de este perfil profesional durante la década 2009-2018. La gestión de redes sociales ha dejado de corresponder a programadores y diseñadores web para convertirse en un perfil profesional de Comunicación y cada año se exigen más competencias y habilidades al community manager, aunque en un contexto de mayor precariedad laboral. Además, parece estar evolucionando hacia la gestión de influencers.

    Audience Attention and Emotion in News Filmed with Drones: A Neuromarketing Research
    (Cogitatio, 2020-07-27) Martín Moraleda, Ignacio José; García García, Alberto Luis; Mañas Viniegra, Luis
    Emotional journalism is being driven by audiovisual technology such as drones, also known as unmanned aerial vehicles, which have demonstrated their usefulness in transforming objective news into news stories from a new visual perspective, facilitating access to dangerous or difficult places. They also allow for greater immersion by an audience that has become an active participant in the news, and they contribute to the storytelling of communication despite the risk to privacy and security that their misuse might entail. The aim of this research is to determine the differences in attention and intensity of the emotions experienced when viewing two pieces of audiovisual news: One was filmed with the technological support of a drone, and the other was produced in the conventional way. The techniques of eye tracking and galvanic skin response were used in 30 Spanish university students. The results suggest that attention was focused on the most spectacular visual elements, although the images filmed with a drone received a higher concentration of attention from the subjects, and this attention was spread throughout the entire image, which demonstrates that drones enhance the effectiveness of panoramic images with natural landscapes. The greatest emotion generated by viewing the images recorded with drones was statistically significant, but it was limited exclusively to these particular scenes, and not to the entire recording of the news.
