Over-65s most likely to share fake news on Facebook

Americans over the age of 65 were most likely to share so-called "fake news" during the 2016 presidential election, according to a new study.
Researchers have found that although only 8.5% of Americans shared fake news during the campaign, the behaviour was "disproportionately common among people over the age of 65".
The study by academics from Princeton University and New York University, is published in the journal Science Advances and also identifies strong partisan differences in the political opinions of those who were more likely to share fake news.
