Abstract

Observed corrections of misinformation on social media can encourage more accurate beliefs, but for these benefits to occur, corrections must happen. By exploring people’s perceptions of witnessing and performing corrections on social media, we find that many people say they observe and perform corrections across the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and France. We find higher levels of self-reported correction experiences in the United States but few differences between who reports these experiences across countries. Specifically, younger and more educated adults, as well as those who see misinformation more frequently online, are more likely to report observing and performing corrections across contexts.
