The Irony of the Flood of Public Information
The public has revealed that the hoaxes circulating are now worrying. This fact was found in this survey, where 41.6 percent said they were very worried and 42.3 said they were quite worried.
For the public, the flood of information on various media forms right now is at a bad level. The public believes the flood of information brings various impacts, including rising potential for division in society.
This flood of information has become ironic. On one hand, the public benefits from information that circulates quickly at a low cost and is easily obtained. However, on the other hand, the flood of information brings negative impacts and social segregation.
