X social media platform ranked highest in disinformation

A European Commission study has suggested that X has the highest rating for disinformation among social media networks.

The study examined over 6,000 unique social media posts across Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, TikTok, X, and YouTube.

According to the BBC, the study analysed content in three countries at high risk of disinformation: Spain, Poland, and Slovakia, due to elections or proximity to the war in Ukraine.

The study, which was carried out by a disinformation monitoring start-up as part of work to support the EU’s code of practise on disinformation, ranked YouTube the lowest.

In September, the commission accused social media companies of failing to stop “large-scale” Russian disinformation campaigns since the invasion of Ukraine.

It also noted that work was underway on tackling AI-generated disinformation ahead of the European elections.
