Abstract

The technique of event and news dissemination is evolving as the Internet grows in popularity and social media becomes more prevalent. Users may only get one side of an event or one of many viewpoints on an event when they get information via social media. Based on medical information distributed on social media during the COVID-19 epidemic, this paper will examine the influence of the post-truth age on the Internet environment. Further analysis will be carried out in this study by consulting scholarly literature and obtaining pertinent data from it. This paper will discuss how the Internet environment in the “post-truth” period is influenced by numerous elements such as Internet information, community, content creation style, and algorithm. This paper gets the conclusion that the spreading of rumors involves multiple aspects, including users’ emotions, interpersonal communication on social media and algorithms.
