Before talking about the threats of media and social media, let’s talk about the definition of the mass media as a term. Mass media refers to the technologies used as channels for a small group of people to communicate with a larger number of people. The concept was first addressed during the Progressive Era of the 1920s, as a response to new opportunities for elites to reach large audiences via the mass media of the time: newspapers, radio, and film.

Indeed, the three forms of traditional mass media today are still the same: print (newspapers, books, magazines), broadcast (television, radio), and cinema (movies and documentaries).

Let’s talk about the threats of Media & Social Media Social Engineering: Today, ‘social engineering’ is one of the most prevalent social media threats and also the most popular tactic for cyber criminals. Social media platforms allow attackers to find personal information that can be used to target specific individuals. Using information from employee profiles, a plausible fake account can be created to establish trust over tim e.

Once the trust is built, the attacker might start asking for specific information, like internal server names, project names, or even have the new friend open an infected document or visit a prepared website that will drop a backdoor onto their computer.

The other threats of Media & Social Media is the Fake Accounts. In July 2010, a fake profile named Robin Sage was actively pushed to request connections to random people, which most people accepted without knowing who the fictitious woman was.

The seriousness of such social media threats gets underscored when one considers that the fake account in this case, was successful in connecting with hundreds of people from various organizations, including military, government, and security firms.

Before talking about the threats of media and social media, we should know the definition of Disinformation: Generally, it is the information that institutions, organizations and governments deliberately disseminate to conceal their main purpose or to achieve their political, military and commercial interests. It is used to provide false direction and distract the target audience.

Here is the another definition for the term Disinformation: Information that is not certain to be true or false, but tries to humiliate the opposite opinion or person by using it as correct. It is called as disinformation.

The Disinformation might spread through the media tools such as internet, radio, television, newspapers and magazines.

Now let’s talk about another definition. The question is : What is Fake News? Fake news is false information presented as news. These are aimed at making money from an organization or through advertising revenue.

The Fake News works by shocking people into reading it, just like gossip. The Fake news is designed to get people’s attention. They want as many readers as possible. This is so they can.

What kind of problems do the fake news cause? Fake news can be harmful to our health. There are many fake and misleading new stories related to medical treatments and major diseases like cancer or diabetes. Trusting these false stories could lead we to make decisions that may be harmful to our health.

What kind of problems do the fake news cause? Fake news makes it harder for people to see the truth. People are negatively affected politically, economically and socially.

 Damage economic prosperity and global influence  Undermine the integrity of government, the constitution and democratic processes  It allows us to obtain false information and apply them

What should/shouldn’t we do to avoid disinformation? We shouldn’t believe the first thing we hear. We should ask ourself: Who wrote that? Well- researched informations have writer or an organization’s name. We should check that.

What should/shouldn’t we do to avoid disinformation? We should ask ourself: What are they saying? Is the author giving us an opinion or idea of the topic? Do they tell us where they found their information? Does the article match the title I clicked on? We should ask these questions.

What should/shouldn’t we do to avoid fake news or a content? We should ask ourself: Where is this posted? We shouldn’t prefer for websites that end in «» or «Lo».

We should prefer for websites that end in «.com» , «.org» , or «.net.» We should choose website addresses that start «https://»

Sevim Gögez Secondary School EGE

What can we do about Fake News or Content? • We should be careful while reading news on social media or in any media platforms. • We should use more than one source for the news. • We should use trusted sites.

Many social media applications used today cause excessive information pollution. The main source of the problem is that everyone shares right and wrong. Fake news leads people to fake information and false information, so we shouldn’t believe every website or news on media such as TV, newspaper or a radio.

As a final remark, Despite many transformations in journalism practices with the development of new communication technologies today, the accuracy and reliability of the news presented to the public continues to be a current issue. As Team 2 I hope that you loved our presentation. Thanks a lot for listening us! 
