Abstract: The extensive spread of fake news (low quality news with intentionally false information) has the potential for extremely negative impacts on individuals, society and particular in the political world. Therefore, fake news detection on social media has recently become an emerging research which is attracting tremendous attention. Detection of false information is technically challenging for several reasons. Use of various social media tools, content is easily generated and quickly spread, which lead to a large volume of content to analyze. Online information is very wide spread, which cover a large number of subjects, which contributes complexity to this task. The application of machine learning techniques are explored for the detection of ‘fake news’ that come from non-reputable sources which mislead real news stories. The purpose of the work is to come up with a solution that can be utilized by users to detect and filter out sites containing false and misleading information. This paper performs survey of Machine learning techniques which is mainly used for false detection and provides easier way to generate results.
