Mike Ananny, Assistant Professor of Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California, led a session titled “Fake News: A Challenge for Decision Makers.” The concept of “fake news” rose to prominence during the 2016 presidential election campaign, but the idea is far from new and the term itself is not precise. The rise of the so-called platform press – social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook that have eclipsed traditional news publishers in popularity. The psychology of liking and sharing information on social media now plays a more prominent role in the visibility of news. Misleading news can be combated by engaging individuals on social media and by developing greater media literacy. A campaign called Design Solutions for Fake News is underway, focusing on how design affects news perception.
