Title

Fake news and the impact of its widespread among media consumers

Abstract

The continuous spread of fake and ill-researched news content in today's media is quite alarming. Media consumers are often fed with fake news. The most worrisome part is that this unverified news is disseminated through popular social media platforms at lightning speed. They are consumed by millions of these innocent users, shared, commented, liked, uploaded in multiple channels. The most bothering aspect is at times we can see television channels broadcasting these unconfirmed content and hence being a parry to the promotion of fake news. With this as background, the present research has been undertaken to study the rate at which fake content is being generated online. Having understood the very fact that fake content is rampant mostly on social media platforms especially in this 21st century, random selection of social media users in Bangalore constitutes the population of the study. The questionnaire method was used as the instrument of data collection and the result of the study revealed that fake news is mostly propagated through social media and it has a long lasting effect and impact on gullible social media users.
