Far-right misinformation gets by far the most engagement on Facebook: Study

According to a NYU study, far-right pages known to spread misinformation garner more engagement on Facebook than any other partisan news. Analyzing engagement between Aug 10, 2020 and Jan 11, 2021, it was found that far-right pages that trade in misinformation raked in 65% more engagement per follower than other far-right pages. Engagement was particularly high on Election Day and on Jan. 6.
