On The Impact Of Information And Communication Technologies: When Rumor Takes Power
AbstractWith the rapid development of information and communication technologies, it is reasonable to believe that reliable information will be offered to citizens, given that the technological means are available to practitioners to carry out their investigations. But it is clear that rumors and similar phenomena such as disinformation, fake news have spread enormously and are thriving more and more, hence the difficulty of distinguishing true from false in a very connected world where news go fast; especially that certain erroneous information conveyed can have negative repercussions, even dangerous for the populations and even for a country. Based on a corpus relating to recent events in Côte d'Ivoire, the aim will be to see the factors that make rumors attractive and to identify their implications. To this end, we will situate ourselves in the approach of enunciative pragmatics for the processing of our data.
