FV-70 | Types of Behavior that Fake News Influence

Prof. Dr. Miguel Brendl, Dr. Ozgun Atasoy


Research Topic

Public figures and many institutions including businesses are targeted by fake news. In this project we examine whether consequences of fake news depend on the type of behavior one observes.
