How to Talk to Your Facebook Friends about Fake News

Alice E. Marwick

D&S fellow Alice E. Marwick was quoted in this piece discussing fake news, confirmation bias, and social media.

When it comes to politics, we “take a personal stake,” says Alice Marwick, a fellow at the Data and Society Research Institute who studies how people present themselves and interact on social media. Political fights on social media are “not an objective debate … but a set of heated emotional arguments that get to the very core of what people believe and how they see their place in the political process and the future of the United States.”
