Italy: perceived influence of fake news 2018 In 2018, about 27 percent of Italian adults thought that the spreading of fake news influenced public opinion and voter choice a lot. In the same year, another poll conducted in the country in the same year showed that online fake news was believed to influence the voters’ opinion, according to 52.5 percent of respondents.
News credibility

  Online news seems to have low credibility, especially social media news. In a 2019 survey conducted among Italians aged between 18 and 29 years, 56 percent of respondents claimed to often doubt the credibility of news published on social media. In general, users since a long time are aware of the poor reliability of information found on the internet. Back in 2015, 51.3 percent of respondents surveyed in a poll stated they believed that information read online should not be trusted blindly.
