Abstract for:Rumor Diffusion through Social Media

The growing adoption of social media increased the pace of spreading information significantly. This increase amplified the traditional problem of rumor propagation. The emergence of false rumors or “False News” caused substantial adverse consequences such as its effects on politics, the stock market, and health issues. Hence, lots of studies used different logics and methods, and explored this area to figure out this problem and finally proposed proper policies to deal with it. In this paper, in order to understand the underlying dynamics, I develop a system dynamics model based on current literature.
