False knowledge claims are not born fake news; they are inseparable from the publics, platforms and infrastructures that make them possible. Mapping the circulation and publics of fake news online. 3. Successful fabrications are not limited to the “news” format; different formats perform well on different platforms. The case of memes as vectors of post-truth politics on Facebook. 4. Difference between ‘real’ and ‘fake’ news not just about claims being made; they are underpinned by different production histories. The techno-commercial infrastructure of fake news.
