Q: Just under half of the people in this 27 country survey said that they had fallen victim to this. What is it?
A: Fake news.
48% of people across the 27 countries say they’ve been taken in by fake news in the past – that they’ve believed a news story was real until they later found out it was fake. Brazilians are particularly likely to agree with this, with 62% saying they’ve believed a fake story at some point.
