Nereida Carrillo / Alberto Montt

The Era of Fake News is here. But what if we have the right tools to fight disinformation?

Trolls, bots, deepfakes, information disorder, conspiracy theories… New generations stumble upon these phenomena on a daily basis on social media or on instant messaging platforms. But what is fake news, really? Who creates it? Has fake news always been around? What purpose does it serve? The book also empowers YA readers to take action and learn to trust professional, contrasted, plural and useful information and to avoid having a fake and biased worldview. How can we spot and debunk misinformation or detect fake videos or images? How can we verify a piece of information? How can we get rid of our biases? Online tools, tricks, step-by-step instructions, funny explanations, games… An entertaining and humorous guide useful for teenagers and adults alike.
