Disinformation is Everywhere.Why Should we Change our Perspective on this Phenomenon?
Keywords:disinformation, misinformation, fake news, manipulation, resilience
Disinformation is a complex phenomenon, although we associate it mainly with politics and the media. However, its tools and consequences can be seen in various areas of social life. Understanding the nature of disinformation, its mechanisms and possible ways of influencing it seems necessary to fully understand this phenomenon. Campaigns targeting minority groups, manipulation in business, falsified messages in the area of health, tools of political propaganda or pseudoscience are examples of disinformation that allow you to see it in a broad perspective. And only this will allow you to develop a system of immunity to fake news.
