Older people more likely to share fake news: study
Facebook users aged 65 plus and conservatives are more likely to share fake news on the platform than younger or more liberal counterparts, according to a new study. Researchers from Princeton University and New York University analyzed the Facebook posts of nearly 1,200 people who agreed to share their data in the aftermath of the 2016 US presidential election. The study, published in Science Advances, found less than only 8.5 percent of respondents shared suspected links. However, those that did tended to be older and self-identified as being on the conservative end of the political spectrum. In fact, users over 65 -- regardless of political affiliations -- shared "nearly seven times as many articles from fake news domains" as 18 to 29-yr-olds.
Indonesia airline brings live music to the skies
Indonesian national flag carrier Garuda is bringing music to the skies with a series of live acoustic concerts on domestic flights, the airline said. Passengers will be serenaded at 35,000 feet in a scheme aimed at wooing millennials "who want a different flight experience", an airline spokesman told AFP. The carrier held its first in-flight concert on Wednesday, when two musicians performed for a captive audience aboard a flight between Jakarta and Bali.
