Disinformation "Fake news"


#1

I am interested in researching the broader social and psychological impact of the spread of disinformation on social media: e.g. reality apathy, depression, anger and anxiety. If anyone is working in this area please let me know.
Here is an excellent report by CB Insights that summaries the techniques, technologies and some current efforts to combat misinformation. Worth reading if you are interested in the topic.

You may find it interesting (or detestable) but I run a website about exactly this subject… disinformation.

It is still in it’s infancy, but it is functional enough to start to understand what web-based disinformation is.

The Associated Press (AP) is the largest producer of disinformation on the planet.

I do need to apologize for the ugliness of it’s DNS routing. ‘Disinformation Info’ is a subdomain of http://13eyes.com and I have encountered difficulty getting DNS to route properly. I may just start again from scratch and built it anew so it doesn’t appear shady like a redirect can.
