Brazil: opinion on how law enforcement should handle fake news on social media 2020

Around nine out of ten Brazilians stated that there should be a law to oblige social media companies to protect users from fake news. Likewise, 81 percent of respondents said social networks should be required by law to present articles with data checked independently to all those who have been exposed to deceitful content. Approximately 71 percent stated that social media companies should also be obliged to remove fake accounts while still allowing people to use other names on their profiles for security reasons or for the sake of humor.
