Combating Dis/Misinformation and Conspiracy Theories

Kuzuzangpo and greetings from The Bhutan Education and Technology Academy Park Private Limited “The BETA Park”!


Welcome to the fourth of a monthly public discourse space for netizens and citizens, BETA Cyber Socials. The series is about advocacy and general awareness on the internet and cyber world.

 

This month we are talking about “Combating Dis/Misinformation and Conspiracy Theories” with local and international IT/ICT experts. Today’s large flows of information create new challenges for government administrations. In the age of social media, it is not surprising, given the real-time nature of social media outlets that government agencies as well as non-governmental organisations use these means to ensure immediate awareness in cases of breaking events, such as natural disasters or terrorist attacks. However, along with valid information misinformation has been found to be transmitted in social media even during crisis and emergency situations. 

 

Misinformation is a common problem in all media, but is exacerbated in digital social media due to the speed and ease with which it can be spread. Furthermore, at this speed, providing countervailing corrective information in a timely manner is even more challenging. The social web enables people to spread information rapidly without confirmation of truth.
