How Susceptible are Internet Users?
Major concerns have been raised over the impact of fake news, echo chambers and filter bubbles. But how pervasive are these problems? What proportion of internet users are susceptible to such sources of disinformation? Based on a seven nation comparative survey of internet users, we have identified those most likely to be vulnerable to the different but related risks of fake news, echo chambers and filter bubbles. Counter to widespread expectations, we find only a small proportion of internet users are likely to be at risk in these countries.
