With ongoing discussions about social media’s role in the spread of fake news
and hate speech, user awareness about the responsibility of tech giants to manage these problems also rise. Even though Facebook and Twitter recently introduced steps to keep their platforms clean, 47 percent of respondents of a survey conducted by Hubspot
perceived their social media
feeds to be more spam -loaded in recent months. This might be due to Facebook’s definition of spam which reads a bit vaguely and does not include for instance fake news. However, 79 percent of all internet users polled agree that fake news counts as spam.
