Fake news and disinformation are generally regarded as two of the biggest social problems of our time. The feared negative effects of misinformation include, for example, the manipulation of elections and the division of society. But there is good news from research: citizens hardly ever come into contact with disinformation. And when they do come into contact with it, there are no significant changes in their attitudes and behavior.

Hoffmann from the University of Leipzig explains why disinformation continues to be perceived as a major threat to society, despite the current state of research.
