Fake news may seem new, but the platform used is the only new thing about it. Propaganda has been around for centuries, and the internet is only the latest means of communication to be abused to spread lies and misinformation.
The fire triangle represents the three elements a fire needs to burn: oxygen, heat, and a fuel. Similarly, fake news requires three different items to succeed. These collectively represent the Fake News Triangle: without any one of these factors, it is unable to spread and reach its target audience.
Governments, companies, and users are all waking up to how serious public opinion manipulation—as manifested in “fake news”—can be.
Governments are starting to recognize that fake news is something that must be actively fought. Various government agencies are now setting up services to debunk stories that they consider to be false. They are also considering imposing regulations and punishing sites that do publish misinformation
The seminar aimed highlighting how we can battel against cyber propaganda. How we government can face and fight with cybercrime also be projecting the Top vulnerabilities that occur in social media. This includes what is our responsibility.
