- Emotion and misinformation in times of public health crisis
ABSTRACT & BIOGRAPHY >
The COVID-19 pandemic has been accompanied by a plethora of both facts and rumors online, creating a so-called infodemic. In this talk, I'd like to share observations as a fake news researcher in South Korea, one of the countries that encountered COVID-19 the earliest. I will talk about (1) the traits of misinformation that circulated widely and their possible impact on vaccine hesitancy and (2) what kinds of emotion will most likely spread misinformation. I'd like to discuss the implications of these findings on public campaigns proactively spreading accurate information in those countries more susceptible to the infodemic with you through the Q&A.
