Russians & Chinese Are More Worried About ‘Fake’ Content Than Americans

    The Germans are the people least worried about fake content on the internet.

    According to a survey by the BBC, only 14 percent are very perturbed by content possibly being fake. Another 33 percent are somewhat worried. So, while 47 percent overall are worried to some degree, this is a low figure compared to how worried people in other countries are.

    However, as Statista’s Dyfed Loesche notes, in Brazil, most people are concerned: 92 percent are worried about what’s real and what’s fake.

    Perhaps most notably however, while American politicians (on the left) continue to push the narrative of ‘fake’ content, fewer Americans “worry about what is real and fake in the web” than in Russia, China, Spain, France, or Greece (though notably the percentage who ‘strongly agree’ is dramatically high relative to other nations).

    The study also finds that more people in 2017 than in 2010 say that the internet should never be regulated by government (58 percent in 2017 to 51 percent in 2010).

    But slightly less people than in 2010 think the internet is a safe place to express their opinions (46 to 48 percent).

    16,542 adults in 18 countries took part in the survey, of which 11.799 used the internet, conducted by GlobeScan.
