We all expected that the Internet would be a source of invaluable information, scientific and other, that was to be used for good.


However the more people that use the internet, the more will abuse it. Spreading misinformation has been a tool of those in power for centuries. States have been using fake news and misinformation to destabilize other countries, economies and societies.


Now more than ever, the spread of misinformation can grow exponentially with a devastating effect. The dissemination of misinformation happens so fast and to such an extent that it is very easy to lose track of what is real and what is not.


It used to be that you would buy your newspaper, and you would trust the facts in it, if you trusted the publisher and the reporters.
