Abstract

Statistics show at widespread of mobile devices, now one hundred percent of the world population owns to smartphone or tablet. In such a framework the learning process, the construction of knowledge, risk to be reduced to a mere ability of using technology. The citizen-consumer, seems to have acquired a power through direct access to information that has transformed him into a producer of content that he can spread simply in a click. Yet this apparent power is showing all its limitations. Access to information is partial, only through some channels and not others, the social environment conveys data flows through the use of increasingly sophisticated algorithms and intuitive applications. This paper intends to analyze how disinformation production is profoundly affecting society by manipulating and altering public opinion construction processes, individual choices, politics and democratic processes.
