The word “fake” has become synonymous with misleading and misleading headlines.
But the term has become a hot topic of discussion, with social media users sharing stories and memes of how to turn it into news, and even an entire subreddit dedicated to doing just that.
Now, one startup has launched a new product that uses a combination of memes, videos and social media to create a story that is not only true, but is also funny.
The concept is simple: The company, called FuzzyRoll, creates a fake news story for users to share on Facebook, Twitter or any other social network.
The company then publishes the story on Buzzfeed, Buzzfeed.com, or a similar site, and gets a percentage of the ad revenue, which the company claims is a way to combat fake news.
“We want to make sure people know that they can trust our story,” said Andrew Gorman, the founder of Fuzzerroll.
“And if it turns out to be a false story, they can also be reassured that we’re not trying to mislead them.
It’s just a different way to reach a larger audience.”
The company has received funding from Google Ventures and angel investors, but it is also looking to expand its audience with a new campaign in the coming months.
The campaign, titled “I’m not a fake,” is being run by a handful of people who want to spread awareness and support the startup.
“This is our chance to show that fake news isn’t just a word that is being used to attack and slander,” Gorman said.
“We’re trying to make it harder for people to say, ‘You know what?
I’m going to tell my friends and my family, I’m not going to put out a fake story like that.'”
The Fuzzers are not the first to experiment with creating fake news stories.
In fact, there is plenty of research showing that stories like these can actually be effective.
“Fake news is more likely to have the same impact if you’re not sure that the story you’re sharing is the truth,” said Daniel H. Harris, professor of journalism and communications at Indiana University and a member of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
In his book, Fake News and the Myth of Accuracy, Harris said the use of fake news has long been a problem, but has been exacerbated by the rise of social media.
“People who don’t trust their own data have a greater incentive to use fake news, because it’s less credible,” he said.
“Fuzzyroll wants to address the problem of fake media,” he continued.
The real message here is that fake stories have a life of their own and can be used as a powerful tool to spread information,” Harris said.”
This isn’t the first time fake news is being promoted online, but this is the first example of people actually using it in the real world.”
“The real message here is that fake stories have a life of their own and can be used as a powerful tool to spread information,” Harris said.
