Abstract


The fake news phenomenon is very topical and widespread in online media. Although there is not much research to consider the definite effects it can have, there are ways to identify any problems that may arise and remove them. Electronic governance comes with a set of tools to help the specialists in public institutions but also the citizens in general to guard against this dangerous phenomenon represented by the magnitude of the fake news transmission. Within this article an analysis of fake news is carried out and several directions of action are proposed to reduce their effects.
