Fake News Detection Tools and Methods - A Review

  title={Fake News Detection Tools and Methods - A Review},
  author={Sakshini Hangloo and Bhavna Arora},
In the past decade, the social networks platforms and micro-blogging sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Sina Weibo have become an integral part of our day-to-day activities and is widely used all over the world by billions of users to share their views and circulate information in the form of messages, pictures, and videos. These are even used by government agencies to spread important information through their verified Facebook accounts and official Twitter handles, as it can reach… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Fake News Detection Techniques on Social Media: A Survey

This study examines a variety of cutting-edge methods for spotting false news and discusses their drawbacks, and examines various datasets used for detecting fake news and proposed an algorithm.

Combating multimodal fake news on social media: methods, datasets, and future perspective

This survey presents a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art techniques for combating fake news on online media with the prime focus on deep learning (DL) techniques keeping multimodality under consideration.

FuDFEND: Fuzzy-domain for Multi-domain Fake News Detection

A novel model, FuDFEND, which solves the limitations of existing fake news detection model by introducing the fuzzy inference mechanism and the results on the Weibo21 show that the model works better than the model using only single domain label.



Some Like it Hoax: Automated Fake News Detection in Social Networks

It is shown that Facebook posts can be classified with high accuracy as hoaxes or non-hoaxes on the basis of the users who "liked" them, and it is suggested that mapping the diffusion pattern of information can be a useful component of automatic hoax detection systems.

Fake News Detection on Social Media: A Data Mining Perspective

This survey presents a comprehensive review of detecting fake news on social media, including fake news characterizations on psychology and social theories, existing algorithms from a data mining perspective, evaluation metrics and representative datasets, and future research directions for fake news detection on socialMedia.

Analysing How People Orient to and Spread Rumours in Social Media by Looking at Conversational Threads

The study shows that rumours that are ultimately proven true tend to be resolved faster than those that turn out to be false, and reinforces the need for developing robust machine learning techniques that can provide assistance in real time for assessing the veracity of rumours.

Understanding User Profiles on Social Media for Fake News Detection

A comparative analysis over explicit and implicit profile features between “experienced” users who are able to recognize fake news items as false and “naïve” Users who are more likely to believe fake news reveals their potential to differentiate fake news.

Studying Fake News via Network Analysis: Detection and Mitigation

This chapter will review network properties for studying fake news, introduce popular network types, and propose how these networks can be used to detect and mitigate fake news on social media.

Automatic Detection of Fake News

This paper introduces two novel datasets for the task of fake news detection, covering seven different news domains, and conducts a set of learning experiments to build accurate fake news detectors that can achieve accuracies of up to 76%.

False rumors detection on Sina Weibo by propagation structures

A graph-kernel based hybrid SVM classifier which captures the high-order propagation patterns in addition to semantic features such as topics and sentiments and is 88% confident in detecting an average false rumor just 24 hours after the initial broadcast.

Network-based Fake News Detection: A Pattern-driven Approach

This work aims to study the patterns of fake news in social networks, which refer to the news being spread, spreaders of the news and relationships among the spreaders, and enhances the explainability in fake news feature engineering.

Early Detection of Fake News on Social Media Through Propagation Path Classification with Recurrent and Convolutional Networks

A novel model for early detection of fake news on social media through classifying news propagation paths that incorporates both recurrent and convolutional networks which capture the global and local variations of user characteristics along the propagation path respectively, to detect fake news.
