An Internet hoax or myth is information portrayed to be true, but is actually false. Internet hoaxes can be dangerous in providing misinformation to people that may alter their thoughts or actions. This information can be defamatory and play on fears, biases and stereotypes. Hoax sites will likely prompt you to share the fake story on Facebook or Twitter, and many people do without checking the facts.
