Who fakes nearly 450 million social media posts a year, according to research from Harvard and Stanford?

The posts appear under the names of apparently ordinary people, and aim to distract from topics related to actual or potential collective action, said

Gary King, the Albert J. Weatherhead III University Professor, who carried out the research with two of his former graduate students:

Jennifer Pan, now an assistant professor at Stanford University, and Margaret Roberts, an assistant professor at the University of California at San Diego.

The Chinese government fakes 448 million social media posts a year in a strategy that seeks to create the appearance of “viral” outbursts of Web activity, according to a new study by Harvard data scientists.
