The now-ubiquitous presence of the Internet and social media like Twitter, Facebook, and blogs enabled misinformation about the nuclear disaster at Fukushima to spread at the speed of electricity.

The benefits of online information dissemination greatly outweigh the costs associated with Internet cacophony.
