    Thanks to the BBC and the police there for informing us that this non-existent thing is "clearly run by hackers"

  18. The way these Momo stories have spread is yet more proof that children need to take a closer interest in what their parents are looking at online.

    I would recommend that any young person worried about what their older relatives are doing online should talk to them. Older people are far more likely to be taken in by fake news than young people, so encourage them to come to you if they are unsure about something.

  19. Err, the story I read about the Momo challenge was written by...the BBC itself. Strange they don't admit that in their "debunking" story. bbc.co.uk/news/technolog…

    I've found the orginal BBC story - it appears they've now re-written it without admitting they've re-written it. That's really shoddy. At the FT, if we change a story post-publication, we add an explainer at the bottom of what we changed & why.

  21. How the "Momo challenge" hoax produced an extreme level of media coverage, in comparison to the dearth of evidence that it actually exists.
