In the past couple of years we’ve seen a lot of talk about Fake News. With the US President Donald Trump as the centre point of much of the debate around it. It seemed like it was something completely new to us. It isn’t. Fake content has been around forever.

It turns out marketing strategies play a big role in this. Because they play on the human mind. In this presentation Bas van den Beld looks at which marketing strategies combined with which human trades make that we believe fake content. And love it.
