Internet disinformation

Other Names:
Unreliable information on the world wide web
False information on the net
False network information

According to a 2018 MIT study, false information on Twitter is 70% more likely to be shared than accurate information.


Just as the public can be vulnerable to disinformational e-mail and internet content, politically active groups using the Internet can be vulnerable to deceptive messages and content introduced by hostile persons or groups. Far-right groups and far-left groups tend to watch each other, and it is likely that "moles" will obtain access to the other camps' networks for the purpose of disrupting their operations.
