According to Rebecca Lewis, Data scientist from Stanford University who has studied 65 conspiracy influencers on Youtube. most are masters of microcelebrity. They brand themselves with meticulous care and attention and spark attention-getting and traffic spectacular conspiracies. They support each other and sometimes, link each other's websites. They optimize their video feeds for search engines. They are very tech saavy and user-friendly style. 

For all their sophistications, social media gaints like Facebook (who use algorithms) cannot prevent the surge of these conspiracies. Infact, they have given oxygen to the traffickers to survive at global scale. 

Examples for this “dark side” of social media include cyberbullying, addictive use, trolling, online witch hunts, fake news, and privacy abuse.
