The Hidden Threat of Fake News

by | Dec 9, 2021 | Public Information

Fake news has been a problem around the world. In 2018, there have been many instances of fake news being spread through different mediums such as social media and websites. People have also been using this to their advantage by spreading false information about people or events for good or bad intentions.  What can be done about it? The best thing you can do is to take time to find out the truth before making any assumptions on what you are reading because often times people will share something just because they believe in it without checking its validity first.

Several studies show that fake news spreads faster than real news due to algorithms such as Facebook’s News Feed algorithm (which prioritizes content based on engagement). If we do nothing, we will only see more fake news coming from both domestic and foreign actors with intentions to disrupt society or discredit democratic values for their own purposes.
