With President Donald Trump set to expand his social media team this week, a Virginia Tech researcher says social media fake news is undermining individual beliefs and understanding in this country.
Donald Trump is not the first to use social media. Both President Obama and Hillary Clinton had large staffs do it. But Trump has taken it to another level.
“He acts like a normal person on thestreet who has something to say to everybody,” said Tech’s Mark Orr. “It puts people in the mindset that they are hearing something from someone who is just like them.”
