Facebook is a frictionless platform for the sharing and spread of propaganda messaging. There really isn’t anything that can be done about the supply side – I think the best we can do is educate consumers in how to interpret information received on social media. That is, learn to be very skeptical – and only share information that you created, or which was created by someone that you know personally.
