Fake news threat: The best ways to tackle disinformation
Around the world, people took to social media to share their reactions to the US Elections result, resulting in a spike of trending new memes. While, for some, social media served as the ideal place to rejoice, the moment was characterised by deep divisions and conflict. It is evident that the global penetration of social media has made it possible for fake news to spread rapidly. In fact, due to fear that that fabricated sensationalist stories could inflame tensions, the social media giants recently introduced new measures to stop misleading content from going viral. But disinformation is nothing new, nor does it only concern politics. We’ve gathered some of the best pieces that look into the wider impact of fake news on consumer trust and the implications for brands.
