It’s that time of year again, when fake news and conspiracy theories are being reported and shared like wildfire.
And we are witnessing an epidemic of fake news on Facebook and other social media platforms.
The trend is spreading rapidly.
What are you seeing?
How can you tell if you are being inundated with fake news?
Here’s what you need to know about it. 1.
The Problem is Increasingly Popular on Facebook This trend has been around for years.
Facebook has long been known as a popular platform for news, politics, entertainment and more.
But this year, as the election campaign was getting underway, people began to notice that Facebook was becoming more popular and more partisan.
This is a trend that has been evident for a long time on social media, but it is especially noticeable this year because of the political nature of the election.
Fake News and Conspiracy Theories on Facebook are getting more and more popular.
As I mentioned earlier, there are already signs of this trend on Facebook.
On October 1, a user posted an article that purported to prove that Hillary Clinton was running for president in 2020.
On September 25, a conspiracy theorist claimed that the government was trying to create “fake news” to control the public opinion.
And on September 26, an author claimed to have proof that a “Russian botnet” was behind the 2016 presidential election.
The posts and rumors were just the tip of the iceberg.
By October 9, there were over 2,000 fake news stories on Facebook alone.
This year, fake news accounts and rumors have also taken center stage on Twitter.
As reported by Business Insider, users who follow @fakenews and @faketrumper are now being inundate with the same kind of nonsense.
Fake news on the Internet is a Growing Problem The growth of fake stories is no accident.
Facebook, Google and other companies have invested heavily in their social media efforts in an effort to combat misinformation and disinformation on the web.
But the fake news problem on the internet is growing.
For example, on September 28, Facebook suspended a page for a fake news site that had claimed that a bomb had been planted in the White House.
The story was picked up by the Associated Press, CNN, and other news organizations, and the story has since been taken down.
In another example, a fake story on the site of an anti-vaccine activist was shared by hundreds of people and shared by tens of thousands of people.
On the same day, an article on Facebook was shared more than 1,000 times.
A Google search of the word “vaccine” led to hundreds of results that referred to “vaccination hoax,” “vaccines hoax,” and “vaccinations,” among other sites.
The fact that these sites share similar misinformation is a testament to the fact that people are sharing it, not only on Facebook but on other platforms as well.
Fake accounts on Facebook The number of people sharing fake news, misinformation, and conspiracy stories on social platforms is increasing.
On a typical day, Facebook says, it receives over 8,000 accounts from people sharing false information.
By comparison, it says that the number of verified accounts that were created in October 2017 totaled 1.3 million.
On Twitter, the number was nearly 1 million.
In October 2017, Facebook said that the site had over 7 million verified users.
In April 2018, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that Facebook had nearly 4 million verified people.
But a closer look at the number on Facebook shows that the real number is much larger.
According to a recent analysis by Google Trends, the share of fake accounts on social networks in 2017 was about one-third higher than the number that actually exist.
That means that the fake accounts account for a much larger share of the population than the actual number of users on social sites.
Facebook Is an Anti-Fake News Platform Facebook has faced some backlash for the way it handles content that promotes fake news.
In January 2018, Google announced that Facebook would be removed from its search results after the social network was found to be a “platform of fake information.”
Facebook was also found to have failed to take action to remove content that promoted fake news during the 2016 election cycle.
In March 2018, Vice President Joe Biden said that fake news was a “growing epidemic” and said that it was important for the company to create a “more honest environment” for people to share their opinions.
Facebook Has a Big Problem with Fake News Facebook is also facing pressure from lawmakers, who have introduced legislation that would make it illegal for companies to share fake news without their permission.
Earlier this month, Facebook was found guilty of violating the Federal Trade Commission Act, a federal law that bans deceptive advertising, when it refused to remove false information that falsely claimed that it had reached a settlement with the U.S. government to settle an antitrust lawsuit.
The FTC charged that Facebook and others were engaged in deceptive
