Web of Deceit
Misinformation and Manipulation in the Age of Social MediaBook - 2012
For all its amazing benefits, the worldwide social media phenomenon--epitomized by such sites as Facebook, Myspace, eBay, Twitter, and craigslist--has provided manipulative people and organizations with the tools (and human targets) that allow hoaxes and con games to be perpetrated on a vast scale. In this eye-opening follow-up to her popular 2002 book, Web of Deception, Anne P. Mintz brings together a team of expert researchers, journalists, and subject experts to explain how misinformation is intentionally spread and to illuminate the dangers in a range of critical areas. Web of Deceit is a must-read for any internet user who wants to avoid being victimized by liars, thieves, and propagandists in the age of ubiquitous social media.
