Spot the Troll

Sock puppets are living in your social media feed.

A type of internet troll, sock puppets appear to be real people. They post on social media not just to provoke but to influence. These fake personalities are active in election season.

KBCS’s Jesse Callahan spoke with Darren Linvill, the lead Researcher at Clemson University’s Media Forensics Lab about how trolls work, and how to spot them.

Producers: Jesse Callahan and Yuko Kodama
