Understanding Why People Share Fake News on Social Media

We talk with Dr. Mohsen Mosleh of MIT's Sloan School of Management, about research he's conducted with Dr. David Rand and Dr. Gordon Pennycook into the psychology of why people share fake news on social media — even if they know it's fake! The findings from the study challenge preconceived notions, and we talk about design mechanisms that have been shown to help mitigate the spread of fake news.
