Internet users who agree that people can separate fact from fiction and would not support a social media ban to stop the flow of fake news during a crisis as of June 2019, by country
Adults opposed to social media bans and agree that people can identify fake news 2019
In April 2019, the Sri Lankan government cut off social media access in the wake of a fatal terrorist attack. According to an Ipsos survey conducted a month later, 54 percent of the respondents agreed that most people could separate fact from fiction, and thus would not support a temporary social media ban to stop the spread of fake news. However, only 41 percent of respondents from Japan agreed with this statement, and according to the source, those with higher level of education were significantly less likely to agree that people were capable of separating fact from fiction.
