What is hoax?

Messages with false alarms – such as virus alerts, online scams, accusations, or chain messages – distributed via the internet and which all have in common the fact that they ask users to share them with as many people as possible. Before the arrival of social networks, they were spread by e-mail, but now they proliferate on platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, or Whatsapp, which makes these messages much more viral.
