Abstract

With the rise of easily shareable online information, fake news have become a pressing issue in our societies. News credibility depends of several factors (reliance on a source of information, media outlet, etc.). We investigate here the immersion factor by comparing in a pilot study (N=6) the impact of fake news in VR (with a 360 degrees video), and fake news on social media (2D videos).
