Infographic Of The Day: Has Fake News Changed Behavior?

Google searches for the term "fake news" exploded right before the 2017 inauguration, and the term continues to cross news feeds (there must be some irony there).

Given how addictive social media can be and how easy it is these days to share with a finger tap or click of the mouse, fake news can go viral on stunning momentum.  Facebook has even tried to use fact checkers of its own, but these have been found to either have no effect or even the opposite impact.

But does awareness of fake news matter?  A majority of survey respondents in today’s infographic said yes, though many won’t discount sources that have provided fake content before.  There’s also still some level of trust in news sources.
