Discover fake news and videos like this

29 Apr 2019

The trend of fake news across the country has gained momentum these days through smartphones, internet and social media. You can also easily identify it with a little awareness. This is a smart era of the world where everything is getting smarter. The paradox is that in this smart era where we have also entrusted the use of our brain to electronic devices, at the same smart time we are falling prey to 'fake news'. ______ The Oxford Dictionary declared the term 'Post Truth' as ​​the 'Word of the Year' of 2016. The term above is defined as an adjective, where fair facts are given less importance in public opinion formation rather than personal beliefs and feelings. The series of fake news started from here. In the era of landline phones, once the entire country had to go out to feed Ganosh ji, the information revolution in the last decade has given the rumors a speed through pictures and videos, which is difficult to imagine. The rapid proliferation of social media and its economic aspect has taken the art of serving lies to a new level, and Facebook and WhatsApp have emerged as centers of new knowledge as a source of this untruth.

Fake news is a huge problem for the country

The country is facing a huge problem of fake news these days. In a country like India, where people evaluate information received based on public acclaim, beliefs and traditions rather than acquired knowledge, any YouTube channel created by meeting ghosts attracts thousands of subscribers overnight. The videos may be false but if they get hits, then the person making them will also benefit financially. In lieu of any developed country, the business of lies in India will also catch pace and bring economic benefits. Before understanding the cycle of fake news, it is important to understand the difference between misinformation and disinformation. Missinformation means information that is untrue, but the person who is spreading it believes that this information is correct. On the other hand, disinformation means information that is untrue and even the person spreading it knows that such information is wrong, yet it is spreading. ______ fertile ground for fake news ______ Fertile ground exists for the spread of both types of information in the country. On the one hand, those innocent people who have become the first consumers of the internet and whatever material is being found there, they forward it without understanding its truth. On the other hand, the savvy people of cyber cell of various political parties spread those false information with the intention of knowing that they are wrong or cut out of context so that people can be organized in their favor. There is a special motive behind all this. Such as getting hits, making fun of someone, throwing mud on a person or organization, co-operation, profit making, political gain or propaganda. Fake news is mostly confusing information or created content. Often such information is spread on the basis of false references.

इंटरनेट एंड मोबाइल एसोसिएशन ऑफ इंडिया और कंटार-आइएमआरबी की रिपोर्ट के अनुसार बीते जून तक देश में इंटरनेट प्रयोगकर्ताओं की संख्या पांच करोड़ हो चुकी थी, जबकि दिसंबर 2017 में इनकी संख्या 4.8 करोड़ थी। इंटरनेट यूजर्स में इतनी वृद्धि साफ इशारा करती है कि इंटरनेट के ये प्रथम उपभोक्ता सूचनाओं के लिए सोशल मीडिया, व्हॉट्सएप व फेसबुक जैसी सोशल नेटवर्किंग साइट्स पर निर्भर हैं। समस्या यहीं से शुरू होती है। ______ भारत में लगभग 20 करोड़ लोग व्हॉट्सएप का प्रयोग करते हैं जिसमें कई संदेश, फोटो और विडियो फेक होते हैं। पर जागरूकता के अभाव में ये वायरल होते हैं। एंड टू एंड एनक्रिप्शन के कारण व्हॉट्सएप पर कोई तस्वीर सबसे पहले किसने डाली, यह पता करना लगभग असंभव है। भारत के लिहाज से इंटरनेट एक युवा माध्यम है जिसे यहां आए 22 साल ही हुए हैं। सोशल नेटवर्किंग अभी बाल्यावस्था में ही है।
