It’s the year 2017, and it’s also the year that social media has gone from the world’s most popular medium to the most contentious one.
From Donald Trump and the alt-right to fake news and fake news stories, we’ve been hearing plenty about what’s wrong with the world.
But a new study, from Oxford University, is showing that there’s one topic that we haven’t heard much about: fake news.
That’s because social media platforms are the ones doing the talking, and people are just tuning in to see what’s going on.
We’re not looking for facts, but rather to see who is pushing fake news, says Elizabeth Loftus, the lead author of the study and a professor of communications at Oxford University.
And, while that’s great, we’re still not seeing the full scope of the problem.
The new Oxford study found that Facebook and Twitter were responsible for more than 40% of all content published on their platforms.
Facebook’s fake news was especially prevalent in the U.S., and the study found its use was increasing on platforms in other countries.
Facebook users were also the most likely to share fake news on Facebook.
“Our data show that people are actually willing to share content that is made up by others and that we have seen on platforms like Facebook,” Loftus says.
“They don’t want to say, ‘That’s fake.
I know the person who made that.
That doesn’t look real.
I don’t think that’s true.'”
Facebook, Twitter, and other social media outlets are known for spreading misleading information.
But in the study, the researchers found that in the United States, fake news spread by these platforms was so rampant that it accounted for a significant portion of the content published in 2017.
“We are seeing this in many other countries,” Loftis says.
Fake news on social media is also a problem in the world of politics, where fake news is increasingly becoming a problem because it can distort the way a politician or a news outlet presents their point of view.
Loftus and her co-authors are currently analyzing how politicians are responding to fake stories.
In the U-K, they’ve discovered that some political leaders are responding by changing their Facebook pages, which has created an environment where the false information can spread even more.
It’s also a concern for journalists.
“The idea that news has no place in a democracy is something that I worry about because it’s going to take a lot of time to fix,” says Loftus.
“And we are seeing it happen already.
We have seen it in France and the U.-K, and in other places.”
And it could be worse for U.K. newsrooms.
In February, the Independent newspaper published a story that included fake news reports on the murder of the actress Joanna Lumley.
According to the article, Lumley had been stabbed and then shot to death in the back of a van.
A video from the van showed that Lumley was alive and was not in the van.
The Independent newspaper apologized for publishing the story, saying the story contained false information.
And the story’s publisher, the News Corp. of Australia, is also facing a series of fake news claims.
The Daily Mail, the world leader in online fake news in terms of reach, has also been the target of the same kind of fake stories that have come from the news platforms of Britain, Germany, and Australia.
The story was published by the newspaper’s website on March 15.
The Mirror also faced a fake news story earlier this year, which led to it publishing a retraction.
“It’s just the kind of things that we’ve seen in the past where a person who is writing a story about the police or the military or the prime minister or somebody is getting attention,” Loftsus says, “and then the people that are following them, they are getting a lot more attention, too.”
This week, the UPD Group, a news aggregator, published a fake story about an upcoming royal visit to Buckingham Palace, which was shared more than 3,000 times and then shared by more than 2,000 users.
This story was shared by Facebook, the social media platform that has grown so popular for its ability to share information from news organizations.
And it’s not the only story to be shared by social media giants.
Earlier this month, CNN, the news network that launched in 2015, was the target.
CNN said it would be publishing a fake article about President Trump that was spread over a wide range of news outlets, including BuzzFeed, The Washington Post, The New York Times, and more.
In addition to the stories published by CNN, The Guardian, and The New Yorker, BuzzFeed also shared stories about the upcoming visit of the U, POTUS, and POTUS.
The UPD group says that since the story was posted, the number of posts on BuzzFeed and other news sites has decreased.
“This is not news to anyone,” Loftas says
