Misinformation – Thematic Research
Regulators and policy-makers disagree on how to tackle misinformation, but there has never been a broader consensus that something must be done. The US elections and the COVID-19 pandemic have given this issue more urgency and pushed online platforms to self-regulate in a way that has never seen before, particularly around political advertising. We do not believe that these attempts will appease regulators and expect Big Tech to be increasingly held responsible for what they publish.
This report looks at how misinformation is impacting the tech, media, and telecom (TMT) industry globally.
It identifies the companies that will be impacted by misinformation regulation, as well as the main trends shaping the misinformation theme.
It includes details of regulatory approaches to misinformation by country and a timeline, showing the major milestones in this theme.
Increasingly, society is blaming Big Tech companies for allowing the proliferation of false narratives spread by humans and bots on the web. They stand accused of distorting the information we consume in ways that are bad for us both individually and collectively. Four years after Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 US presidential election, fake news is still a major concern, and social media companies have failed in their attempts to banish it.

“COVID-19 has caused significant interference to our business and the COVID-19 intelligence from GlobalData has helped us reach better decisions around strategy. These two highlights have helped enormously to understand the projections into the future concerning our business units, we also utilise the project database to source new projects for Liebherr-Werk to use as an additional source to pitch for new business.”
Your daily news has saved me a lot of time and keeps me up-to-date with what is happening in the market, I like that you almost always have a link to the source origin. We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.
Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.
