A lot of the content on the internet has been deliberately fabricated, with bots, fake news, and other forms of misinformation flooding the internet, including a major study conducted by researchers at Columbia University.
In a paper published this week in Science, the researchers found that, on average, fake content has an accuracy rate of less than 10 percent.
That’s lower than what we would expect, given that the researchers had to look at a vast amount of information, from social media accounts to news sources, to get the numbers.
The research team included researchers from the University of Chicago and Princeton University, and it used data from the social news aggregator Facebook to examine the sources of misinformation on the site.
The study also included news stories that appeared on the news aggregators Facebook and Twitter, and analyzed what was posted about each source.
The researchers found a wide range of fake news content.
Some of it appears to be factual, but there’s also fake news that’s just sensationalist.
The fake news has come in many forms: viral hoaxes, conspiracy theories, and conspiracy theories that aren’t supported by evidence.
And some of the stories are more outlandish than others.
The team found that there were over 8,700 fake news reports from August to October 2017, and that more than 60 percent of them had at least one article that claimed that a presidential candidate had raped a child, an act of violence, or the murder of someone in the military.
Fake news on Facebook has been a problem for years, and this year is no exception.
The authors of the study note that fake news isn’t limited to Facebook, but it has been the subject of several fake news investigations in the past year.
“The social media platform was used to publish the news and information that is now known to be false and/or misleading,” the authors write.
“A number of investigations have found that Facebook had enabled and facilitated the dissemination of false news stories on its platform.”
Facebook has faced criticism in the press for allowing such fake news on its site.
On October 2, Facebook said it was looking into the issue.
“We want to ensure that everyone can easily find the news they need, so we’re taking steps to prevent the spread of false and misleading information on Facebook,” Facebook wrote.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently announced that Facebook would be making it easier for users to flag content that appears to promote hate speech.
