"Disinformation, a method frequently used from past to present to manipulate individuals and societies, has been moved to a different dimension with the widespread introduction of social media into our lives. Information pollution and distorted news have reached their highest levels because of the uncontrolled and anonymous sharing attributes of the internet and new media channels, which are essential in producing and disseminating information. "Cinar said.
He also added that It is getting more and more difficult for users to learn the accuracy or inaccuracy of the information in the internet media, where misinformation spreads faster than the truth. He highlighted that the importance of verification platforms is gradually increasing in the internet environment, where false and erroneous sharing cannot be prevented.
