The ‘Viral Nature’ of ‘Fake News’

1. The online network is optimized for ‘click-through’

2. Online users are ‘optimized’ for ‘instant sharing’

We could take a different approach and focus on quantifying the level of responsibility of each of the involved parties with the intent not to penalize but to educate and raise global awareness.
