The world has been hit by the COVID - 19 epidemic, prompting us to release vaccines at breakneck speed. As much as this elicited an outpouring of joy from us, it also elicited a slew of worries and anxieties. So much so that many have been led astray by false information spread throughout their various social media platforms. It didn't take long for us to realize how quickly these "news" circulated among peers and friends. This led us to work on this project, in which we attempted to identify adequate links between the propagation of these misinformation and the factors that may be connected with our respondents being fed lies from sources they believe to be trustworthy based on personal ties. In order to find our targeted outcomes, we used a cognitive method. A total of 202 replies were chosen for the final round, in which respondents were presented with falsified news and then asked how they would react to news being shared or posted with someone with whom they have a personal connection. The Likert Chart Scale was our primary method of data collection, with Yes/No responses serving as a backup. The findings do provide us with some insight into the people who believed in our fabricated news, as well as how they would behave in a situation where the source of similar hoax news came from people who have a respectable place in their lives.
