This paper looks at how consumption and supply of fake news are propagated through the intended use of the social media user. We present data from 185 participants from an experiment with participants randomly assigned to generate social media posts with different goals. While we were unable to find a significant result in the area of goal setting, we were able to back up previous work in the field of misinformation.
