Tech Companies Struggling to Stop The Spread of Fake News

Description

Fake news is a human problem. And Silicon Valley is not good at solving human problems. With tech platforms built to supercharge the sharing of information, tech companies, journalists, and academics are scrambling for a solution to the spread of misinformation on the internet. A study published last week in the academic journal Science provided a stark reminder of the challenge posed by misinformation — and why modern technology is making it worse. The study found that it took true information on Twitter six times as long as misinformation to reach 1,500 people. The study found that real people remain the biggest conduit for fake news. So far, nothing has been able to stop this people problem, and Silicon Valley is running out of ideas.
