In this comprehensive law practicum, student researchers at Stanford University surveyed the ways in which Facebook, Google, Twitter and Reddit helped facilitate the spread of fake news during the 2016 U.S election. They divided their report into separate sections for each platform, drawing upon user experiments, search analyses, interviews with major news organizations and current and former government officials and a review of steps already taken to address misinformation. For Facebook, researchers recommended the platform continue investing in its fact-checking partnerships to cut down on fake news readership. For Google, authors recommend implementing more effective algorithmic monitoring to avoid surfacing hoaxes. For Twitter, researchers recommended the platform pilot a crowd-sourced fact-checking and flagging system to decrease the spread of fake news links. Finally, for Reddit, the authors said the platform should work to decrease the visibility and reach of subreddits that are known to regularly foster conspiracy theories.
