We are excited to announce October’s edition of OUCH! – “Fake News”. People can be paid to post fake news on behalf of someone else or automated programs, often called bots, can publish auto- generated fake news. The motivations as to why people create and distribute fake news are as numerous as there are individual opinions. Learn how to spot and protect yourself from fake news. Led by Guest Editor Jason Jordaan, download and share OUCH! with family, friends and co-workers, and as always translated into over 20 languages.
