The rise of online environments as an effective means of communication has radically changed the way in which news is accessed, consumed and shared. The rise of social media as a news-platform enriches our experiences of access to information and participation. This study examines the news consumption process of young users on social media with Eveland's Cognitive Mediation Model. This study aimed to reveal the relationship between random media exposure, participation in shared news content, cognitive refinement, and current affairs information and this research was carried out using 402 data collection tool. According to the results of the research, most young users pay attention to the news they encounter on social media as a part of their connection to digital environments that require online access. The results also show that social media capable of involving young users who are passively exposed to news mediate the relationship between news and information use.
