Today we’re gonna talk about misinformation.

It refers to false information that is spread, regardless of whether there is intent to mislead. Examples of misinformation include false rumors, insults and pranks.

The meaning of misinformation is often conflated with that of disinformation.

Disinformation means “deliberately misleading or biased information; manipulated narrative or facts; propaganda.”

Apparently, the two are not interchangeable. And the difference between misinformation and disinformation comes down to intent.

For example, if a politician strategically spreads information that they know to be false in the form of articles, photos, etc., that’s disinformation. When an individual sees this disinformation, believes it, and then shares it, that’s misinformation.


One of the most widespread misinformation I’ve heard is “fake eggs“.

In 2017, a video of “making fake eggs” has caused a stir. After a few days of spreading, many people began to believe it and further spread, which made more and more people panic.

Actually, those fake eggs (which are shell-less) are a kind of trick toys.

It is worth mentioning that, the technology of making simulation eggshell hasn’t been mastered until now.  And the cost of one fake shell-less egg is undoubtedly higher than one real whole egg.
