Future skills: understanding fake news

Imagine this: two news articles are shared simultaneously online. The first is a deeply reported and thoroughly fact-checked story from a credible news-gathering organisation – perhaps Le Monde or The Wall Street Journal. The second is a false or misleading story. But the article is designed to mimic content from a credible newsroom, from its headline to the way in which it has been shared.

The first article – designed to inform – receives limited attention. The second article – designed for virality – accumulates shares. It exploits the way your brain processes new information, and the way social media decides what to show you.

Most people are getting at least some of their news from social media now. In order to maximise profits from displaying ads, news feeds and timelines show the content that attracts the most attention. This ends up favouring headlines that scream for reactions (expressed as shares, “likes” and comments). Add to this the ability to boost the visibility of any message by buying an ad and targeting the people most likely to react to it (based on interests, behaviours and relationships), and people can produce disinformation at unbelievable rates and then track their success.
