Have you ever wondered how Colombians perceive the Internet? Based on this question, @PuntoCO Internet (GoDaddy Registry) in alliance with the Centro Nacional de Consultoría has carried out a series of investigations that reaches its sixth edition.

Among the findings of the study, it was found that 9 out of 10 respondents attribute fake news to social networks. But at the same time, it was found that the majority, 46% of those surveyed, believe more in newspapers than in other media.

Similarly, it was found that the frequency with which Colombians visit the web pages of the country's media is high: 40% of the interviewees do so several times a day and 22% once a day.
