Although the notion of fake news and disinformation dates back many tens of centuries, in the 21st century it has acquired a new powerful tool – the internet, that made it even more influential and encompassing. Social networks and social messaging have even further enhanced the spread of fake news. The groups most susceptible to falling for fake news are seniors and Youth.
