SocialFlow CEO, Jim Anderson spent some time with Jon Erlichman on Canada’s BNN today, joining the conversation about viral fake news stories being spread via Facebook.
As large as the issue seems, Jim notes the problem might not be quite as large as we think it is. “The scale at which it’s happening is surprisingly small.
