Description

Misinformation is about inaccurate and deceptive information that is spread unintentionally, although disinformation describes incorrect or misleading information that is disseminated purposefully. The point is that both lead to lasting misperceptions. This book focuses on information manipulation in different areas including finance and economy, health, society and the public, ecology, science and technology, and politics. It considers the effects of misinformation/disinformation on organizations, human resources, customers, citizens, and governments. Additionally, it describes detection models and approaches of misinformation/disinformation as well as anti-misinformation actions, policies, and laws. Misinformation and disinformation in social media and messaging apps are discussed in this book as well.

Therefore, this book is a collective resource with comprehensive knowledge in the areas of misinformation and disinformation. It is not only about misinformation/ disinformation in social media and politics, but also discusses misinformation and disinformation in other fields particularly organization, health, and the economy.

Target audiences are practitioners (managers, engineers, and experts in various fields including finance and economy, health, society and the public, ecology, science and technology, and politics), academics (researchers, lecturers, and advanced students), and professional institutions.
