Fake Reviews

Sarah Best

6th February 2019

Many students will have heard of 'fake news' but the following video explores the lengths one person will go to obtain a high listing for their restaurant on the review site TripAdvisor.

But there is a twist... this restaurant was fake.

Oobah Butler set up a fake restaurant in a shed and through the use of fake reviews managed to get his restaurant to the number one spot in London.

A fascinating insight into the use of social media and how it can be so easily used to deceive.
