« Fake News » - Digital disinformation

Historically, disinformation has always existed (hoaxes, propaganda, defamation, popular beliefs, parodies, etc.). Some people say that the rumour is the oldest medium in the world. Still, it is not until 2017 that the term « fake news » pops up in the Collins Dictionary as the word of the year. In a race for ‘clicks’ and ‘likes’, social networks and the Internet play an important role in disinformation.

Did you know that disinformation propagates six times faster than real information and that disinformation has 70% more chance of being retweeted than real information?
