Americans lose confidence they can sniff out social media bots

  • In contrast, 84% of Americans expressed confidence in their ability to recognize made-up news in an earlier study." The new survey by the Pew Research Center explored American thought on automated accounts on social media platforms and found that many think social bots have a negative impact on how people stay informed.
  • And about two-thirds (66%) think that social media bots have a mostly negative effect on how well-informed Americans are about current events, while far fewer (11%) believe they have a mostly positive effect." Stocking and Sumida defined what they mean by social media bots – "accounts that operate on their own, without human involvement, to post and interact with others on social media sites." Shannon Liao, The Verge, noticed something interesting about the naysayers, in that you could not categorize them by age and not by political persuasion; those who disliked bots crossed those lines.

Scientists are starting to learn how e-cigs like the Juul can impact your health — and the results are troubling

  • Most recently, researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine surveyed young people who vape and found that those who said they used Juuls vaped more frequently than those who used other brands.
  • Researchers took a look at the compounds in several popular brands of e-cigs (not the Juul) this spring, and found some of the same toxic metals (such as lead) inside the device that they normally find in conventional cigarettes.
  • Brain-imaging studies of adolescents who begin smoking traditional cigarettes (not e-cigs) at a young age suggest that those individuals have markedly reduced activity in the prefrontal cortex and perform less well on tasks related to memory and attention, compared to people who don't smoke.
  • So for a study published this week, researchers from the Stanford University School of Medicine surveyed young people who vape and asked them whether they used the Juul or another e-cigarette.
