New OII report on Disinformation: Global Inventory of Organised Social Media Manipulation

According to the report, organized social media manipulation has more than doubled since 2017, with at least 70 states employing computational propaganda to shape public opinion.

“Although social media was once heralded as a force for freedom and democracy, it has increasingly come under scrutiny for its role in amplifying disinformation, inciting violence, and lowering trust in the media and democratic institutions,” said Bradshaw, the report’s lead author.
