Question - Recently, fake news and misinformation about mass
shooting in Las Vegas are circulated and shared on social media. For
example, a person was wrongly identified as the shooter and started to get
death threats after his name was spread across the internet. Also, fake news
said that the ISIS did the attack.
New technologies and social media sites allow large numbers of amateur
individuals to post online with little or no “gatekeepers” or filters.
Tweets, Facebook posts, and blogs are not fact-checked before they get
posted on social media platforms. Misinformation is circulated across social
media. The slides on Misinformation have been posted on Blackboard, and the
following are supplemental readings about fake news and misinformation.
Please write a report about misinformation/fake news and social media
platforms (2 or 3 pages, single spacing, 12 font size). More specifically,
you want to answer the following questions.
1. How does misinformation affect public policies? (30 points)
2. How does misinformation affect organizations? (30 points)
3. How to stop dissemination of misinformation/fake news? (20 points)
4. Any issues of misinformation or other impacts that you find important?
Please discuss those questions in your report and submit it on Blackboard by
the due date. You need to cite your references in your report. You may use
the above mentioned articles or cite other sources that you find online.
