In a blog post published on Wednesday, the Minister for the Digital Economy and Society said that he is “concerned” about the “increasing number of people” who are “using social media to spread misinformation” and that the government is considering “actions to ensure we do not see the rise of fake news” in the country.

“We want to make sure we tackle the threat of fake stories and misinformation in a safe, efficient and effective way,” he wrote.

“These actions will include working with them to work with other authorities and organisations to develop a code of practice to identify and identify and tackle fake content, and ensure that content is shared appropriately.””

It is vital that we continue to work closely with law enforcement and regulatory bodies to tackle the threats of fake and misleading content on social networks and we will continue to build on our existing partnerships with industry to further develop our shared understanding of the issues around fake news.””

“Mundell said that the Government is considering measures to make it easier for people to report fake content to authorities.”

The Government is committed to making sure that anyone who believes they have seen or heard of a fake story or story with a false claim can report it to the police, so that they can make an informed decision as to whether or not to take legal action,” he said.”

In the case of fake accounts, we are also working with regulators and other law enforcement to develop best practice guidance and best practices to identify fake accounts.

“This will allow people to be able to report hoaxes more quickly, and will help to prevent a repeat of the actions that were taken in March to address the problem of fake reports.”

As the digital economy continues to evolve, the Government will continue working closely with the sector to tackle online threats and misinformation, and we look forward to continuing to work together with them in the years to come.”‘

In February, Facebook, Twitter and Twitter revealed that the fake news sites they had identified had been using automated processes to spread misleading and false stories, including that of “a Muslim woman who was killed by a bus driver”.

In March, Facebook said that “fake” news sites in the United States had “spread far beyond the boundaries of the US” and said that Facebook was taking steps “to remove fake news from the United Kingdom.”
