Taking Responsibility for Fake News: How We Accept and Perpetuate It

Hosted by Shiv Singh

tuesday, April 30, 2019

12:25 PM - 12:50 PM

Sheraton Times Square

Stage 3

We grew up believing that we could trust our friends, teachers, newspapers, social media feeds, corporations, and politicians. That’s not the case anymore. Misrepresentation, exaggerated truths, and outright fake news have become a worldwide phenomenon. Finding truth in today’s world is only getting harder. But it isn’t just the fault of our leaders, the media, or foreign agents. As regular people, we too carry the blame.

Drawing upon principles from psychology, real-world business experiences and headlines from 2018, Shiv Singh will explore the human glitches that explain how we accept fake news, perpetuate it and what we can do differently in the future.

Attend this session and learn:

  • How to identify exaggerated truths/fake news
  • Retrospective on 2018’s misrepresentation on social media feeds
  • How to avoid perpetuating these experiences
