Social media, online news, blogs, etc. – in conjunction with widespread access to the internet from multiple devices including cell phones – is creating a new information environment. In this environment, the norms of social interaction, conversation, public discourse, and news reporting are being rewritten.

In this panel hosted by the South Big Data Hub, panelists will explore how Trolls and Bots can shape the conversation, shift public discourse, and build bridges among groups who might not otherwise connect. We explore how fake news can spread and the role of different types of actors in creating, spreading, countering and monitoring such news.
